I have never had that sort of problem.
I cant recall the official minimum mem req for dns7 but as a guide I would  
expect it to crawl with 256M and fly with 512M

Speach rec is memory hungry process and will speed up considerably if  
given more RAM, but I have not seen it get stuck as you describe.

Unless you are near zero on that partition I dont think that is likely.

It may be worth limitting the number of unknows if you want to get it  
working quicker.

I would suggest you try a known, working combination of wine version ,  
sound drivers and get it to working and then try to update wine and try  
different drivers if you wish.

Since wine is still very much in developement it is not a case of "newer  
version = less bugs", often changes break things that did work, that's why  
wine is still in alpha. I have suggested a version that works with ns7,  
using that may eliminate one poss cause of problems.

On Gentoo you can use quickpkg to make a binary of your current wine  
package to save you having to recompile when you switch back.
