with today's CVS commit (for those who stay up to date with 
the latest developments), you'll have to modify your Wine 
configuration to reflect the changes.

First of all, your Wine configuration file now needs a WinMM section
containing the following:
"Drivers" = "wineoss.drv"
"WaveMapper" = "msacm.drv"
"MidiMapper" = "midimap.drv"

Not adding this will print the following message
> You didn't setup properly the config file for the Wine multimedia modules.
> Will use the hard-coded setup, but this will disapear soon.
> Please add a WinMM section to your Wine config file.
Note that the above configuration will be shortly required, so don't
wait before setting your configuration up

Next, you have also to add a key to your registry. To do so, 
create a sample file (let's call it foo) containing the following text:


then goto the <wine>/programs/regapi and compile the program
the run:
regapi setValue < foo
that's it

Not applying the key in the registry will result in various errors in 
MIDIMAP_ functions (mainly if Wine is set up to use a native 
Windows system)

Maintainers are welcome to update theirs packages accordingly (default 
values are in documentation/samples/config & winedefault.reg)

Detailed information is available in documentation/multimedia.sgml.
