debug output when sound fails

Perfect World International client.

The game is started by running the launcher. A window is shown, where the game
checks the client version and updates it if needed. Then click "start", at
which point I always hear the clicking sound just fine. The actual game loads
and presents a dialog of game information. Click "Confirm" and you should hear
another clicking sound. Sometimes I hear nothing, and the whole game will be
completely silent.

It seems fairly random, if I get sound or not. If sound is missing, it is
unlikely that restarting the game fixes it. A reboot seems to have a better
chance to get it working. I am guessing this a race between the patcher and the
game, and disk caches affect it. Dropping disk caches improves the probability
to get sound.

I've attached a debug log of a case where sound is missing: pwi-debug.txt. The
command was:
wine 'C:\pelit\pwi\launcher\Launcher.exe' &> pwi-debug.txt

The relevant part seems to be:

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1008:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
fixme:dsalsa:IDsDriverImpl_Open Failed to open device: Device or resource busy
warn:dsalsa:IDsDriverImpl_Open --> 80004005
warn:dsound:DirectSoundDevice_Initialize DSOUND_ReopenDevice failed: 80004005

When that happens, there will be no sound in the game. Note, that the launcher
(patcher?) always succeeds in playing the click sound just fine. I have no
other audio applications running. I have not used winetricks.
