Of course. I only mentioned the application because it's a nice test-app that
exposes the problem, small download, free, works pretty much perfectly on
Wine otherwise. Because Andreas mentioned he has no game installed to test.
On a side note, another demo using DSound I tested seems to work just fine
without Mike's patch or realtime-lsm, no stuttering sound. fr-025 by
Farbrausch, also available from pouet.net. And just like Instant Zen it's
quite CPU and GPU heavy, so I don't think the problem is 3D/ Nvidia-related.
Instant Zen uses OpenGL, fr-025 uses Direct3D (D3D9, IIRC).
Yet another application I tested, Reason by Propellerheads, uses neither
OpenGL/ D3D nor DSound at all and has stuttering sound, so neither 3D
graphics nor DSound seems to be the culprint...
