           Summary: regression - problems with the OSS driver / foobar2000
                    unexpected issues
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.43.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-multimedia

I have been hearing the Wine developers are not improving the OSS driver
anymore.  I mean, what the heck?  OSS 4.0 has become free software, and most
UNIX-style systems are going to move to it (Solaris, *BSD, etc.).

What brings me here is foobar2000, which used to work just fine and now is
spewing out some weird errors as of Wine 0.9.43.  This is one of them:

err:wave:wodOpen fragment size set failed, size is now 2048
Your Open Sound System driver did not let us configure small enough sound
This may cause delays and other problems in audio playback with certain

I have checked with the OSS developers, they think it's a Wine issue as the
Wine OSS driver hasn't been updated to work with OSS 4.0.  I'm using OSS 4.0
for a month now, and I don't remember this happening before, so I suspect it
may be a regression.

This is causing sound stutering when running as a normal user.  While running
as root, the error still shows up in the logs, but at least it's not causing

What I seriously suspect it's a regression is the 4front's headphones plugin I
use on foobar2000.  The plugin sticks on the system tray (of KDE) and allows me
to change the configuration, which is stored on the Windows registry.  It
doesn't load anymore as of version 0.9.43.

The logs are showing other messages that didn't appear before:
fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly

fixme:advapi:SetNamedSecurityInfoW L"OSPI_CTL" 6 4 (nil) (nil) (nil) (nil)
fixme:keyboard:RegisterHotKey (0x10056,49236,0x00000003,90): stub
fixme:keyboard:RegisterHotKey (0x10056,49238,0x00000002,74): stub

What can I do to help fix any of those issues?
