I'm finding a similar problem and my sample ringtone which work on other devices don't work on tour 184.108.40.206 simulator even in the RIM media player. This is easily reproduced by getting some of the most popular free ringtones from crackberry - (The Logic being: if they are popular they likely at least function properly - especially if you grab 10 or more of them) and:
Put the ringtones on a folder on your PC - name the folder 'stuff' for this example,
launch the Tour simulator.
From the simulator, go to 'simulate' and choose 'change SD card' .
Click 'select directory' and choose the 'stuff' directory.
The simulator should alert that an SD card is inserted.
On the simulator, choose 'media' and select 'my ringtones' and the downloaded ringtones should show up.
Select one of the downloaded ringtones - they don't play.
Repeat these steps any other simulator and they do play.

This is even easier to reproduce, the pre-loaded ringtones don't even play on the tour simulator.
The logs in the open issue mention that RIM is unable to reproduce the problem. Maybe they are using the real device and not the simulator.
