Then that's a design decision that gets a nasty tail.
Is it possible to leave pulseaudio  out of it and use alsa directly
assuming that is not being stopped when you logout..
or wait let me guess.. canberra can't switch between alsa and pulseaudio...

There are probably 2 ways to go here:
easy : add those sounds directly in gnome-session
hard : make those logout actions and let them (where ever that might
be) play them.. having those events could end up handy for other
applications..? don't know a case really.
