Ring, tones and alert sounds played only from the phone speaker even with headphones attached

This started happening after one of the latest sailfish updates. If I attach the headphones to my Jolla 1, I expect to hear the notification tones, ring and alerts through them, but instead they are played from the phone's speakers.

The typical situation is while listening to some music. The music volume goes to zero on the headphones, but the notification sound of a message comes from the internal speaker.

I think this is by desing but I would also prefer the ring tone from headphones. Doesn't matter much, though.

If this is by design, it's a recent change and it's not ideal, especially when using in-ear or isolating headphones. In those cases, you barely hear the ambient sounds. If you are listening to music, you can only infer that something happened because the music volume has been zeroed, but you can't hear what happened (was it a calendar alert? an IM? a SMS?).
