Just tested Mike's patch with realtime-lsm. Running Wine as regular user now 
gives perfect audio with no stutter for every application I tried so far. So 
yes, realtime-lsm actually does the trick - me happy! ;)
I load realtime-lsm with "gid=18 mlock=1 allcaps=1" (gid 18 is audio), and set 
wineserver to root:audio. Easy solution, great results!
