I encounter the same issue. wine wants to access /tmp/ksocket-$USER, but i
not have KDE installed (only KDM) and do not use arts (arts isn't even
installed, only some library headers which i can't uninstall because of SDL)
any other soundserver, but hardwaremixing. So i have to manually create the
directory /tmp/ksocket-$USER to let the audio tab in winecfg not crash.

I tested this with wine 0.9.10 and 0.9.11.

Notes from Tom:

This should be a fairly trivial fix, all we need to do is check for the
existence of the socket file before trying to connect to it, and if it is
not there, then skip the arts probe..

Could someone whip up a patch for this?
