~/.alsoftrc made Mirrors Edge and even Unreal Tournament 3 running! I went bit
further, because pulse in not popular in wine(i guess), so my ~/.alsoftrc
consist of following two lines only:

drivers = alsa

I hope that's OK - being more strict than author suggest ;)

Few points:

i] When pulse is used, i get in console:

 socket(): Address family not supported by protocol

i track it down and it's printed when alcOpenDevice is used with pulse. But
seeing this line in wine output made me think about some networking issue.

ii] Raymond seems to have right about not checking return values. I'm not a
programmer to help with these. So Raymond, would you please consider sending
patches to wine-devel?

iii] I would keep this bug open with subject stating "Not a wine bug". For the
same reason as bug 20380 is being kept opened. Removing regression keyword...
