Try resetting your iPod in the Settings>General Reset>Reset All Settings. I've found out that the external speaker alarms go mute as soon as you attach the sync cord as well as settings as you mentioned, don't 'take' when selected. If this doesn't work you will need to reset your ipod completely.
'Time passing' is one of a few alarm sounds. You won't be able to hear it unless you have the headphones attached, untill you reset again.
Unfortunately your problem may reappear once you attach the sync cord again until Apple fixes this bug.
