I don't know what's the impact on winecfg. All I'm saying is that 
normally if you set "Drivers" = "winearts.drv:winealsa.drv:wineoss.drv" 
it should try each in turn.

Actually, it does not stop at the first one. It loads all those that 
work but that seems right to me: each is exposed to Windows apps and 
some apps let you choose which one to use. It's a bit like having more 
than one soundcard in your PC. I believe dsound has some problems with 
that though.
