Unfortunately, I never got to try out this method properly.  WoW has
it's own dbghelp.dll that it checks on login and that contains different
functions to wine's dbghelp.  So I got stuck there, but it's not all bad

Whilst playing around trying to get some kind of lead, the sound cut out
on me whilst playing the game.  I decided to keep going, and the game
played for a surprisingly long time.  The next day I booted the game
with wine's sound drivers disabled and played for about 10 hours total
without a crash (for purely stress-test reasons you understand ;)).
I've had a chance to give it a go with the now and that
also seems stable, so I guess the problem is in which I
had been using.

I haven't had a chance to try to get some debug logs just for the sound
yet, but when I get the time I will.
