Uhm... Quicktime is a little bit special, it seems to trigger a lot of race
conditions. To maximize the start success:
- check that the sound modules are already loaded
- check that no other program is playing sound
- don't use '--debugmsg'
- give the full path in Windows stile to the file you want to play (e.g
  wine QuickTimePlayer.exe 'c:/My Documents/'
- don't use the provided with Quicktime, it seems to be a
  little special, meaning that it automaticly starts to play and that
  dosn't work even with audio.c 1.44 pretty well.
- if you hadn't success for the first time retry it.
