the way the wine OSS driver and the wine Alsa driver control streaming
data to the sound card is a bit different, so it's possible to get
different effects thru different wine drivers. I'm not telling that Alsa
behavior is correct :-(
setting this correctly isn't trivial, because it also depends on lots of
- how the program sends its sounds bits
- how your current system is loaded
- ...
not so many people work on Alsa 0.9 these days, so if you want to give
it a shot, be welcome
