Well, but Wine doesn't fix bugs for Windows programs. If a program
doesn't work in Windows, it's not a requirement that it works in Wine.
I think that the PulseAudio developer means the same thing for PA.
Some apps use ALSA in a way that cannot be expected to work. In other
words: it probably fails on some ALSA systems as well.
