This is something I would not mind knowing myself. It's not too high a
priority for me though as I have SoundFonts working on my SBLive now.

This looks like what I would get from the OSS driver - emu10k1.
The module name for the ALSA driver is snd-emu10k1. The choices
I would expect from ALSA's OSS emulation would be something like:
Emu10k1 Port 0
Emu10k1 Port 1
Emu10k1 Port 2
Emu10k1 Port 3

I would imagine this should stay on General midi unless you are
*sure* it needs to be on another selection.

Try running it like this ...
wine -debugmsg +winmm,+midi,+msacm program_name.exe
... and send the output.
