Yup, that is the reason: the alarm app plays only
"/usr/share/alarm/sounds/phone.wav" as sound file. But this dir and
file aren't there. Copying it from somewhere else fixes it.
The button "set new alarm" doesn't work though, and a snooze should be
nice as well :-) And while I'm asking for features: more than one
alarm and the possibility to edit the repeat would be nice :-)
Now to get auto-suspend working ... or is that not possible yet?
