As far as I can tell it's always been "press" and not "vm-press".

This doesn't appear to be specific to a certain language. You can rename your "vm-press" file to "press" as a workaround.

If the developers changed this, it would likely be an improvement and not a bug.

Acknowledging this as a potential improvement. I can see how the inconsistency of the naming convention in use for voicemail sound files could cause confusion.

I'm going to veto that :-)

While this may look confusing, 'press' is not necessarily a voicemail specific sound file.  What's more, this has historically always been 'press' - changing the sound file name is *highly* likely to cause upgrade issues for people.  As it is not harmful to keep the sound file named as it currently is, we will defer doing this.
