Thanks for the tip. To take it one step further, it seems that any application that is or was playing sound but is still open can cause the same issue.
Additionally, if an alarm is on and is playing (as an example), it can prevent email notification sounds, calendar reminders and several other sound playing events from being audible (and no, they were not trying to play the same sound file). I haven't tested this extensively, so there may be exceptions but for the most part I have found that sometimes certain applications that play a sound can interfere with other apps that play a sound.
If I had to guess, and based partially on the OP's Media Player finding, I would say that applications that call up or use the media player modules in order to play sounds can have the same result as having the Media Player open/paused, and prevent the sound from being audible.
