Which is why I agree with the ideas from Mike and Dimi AND Segin.. Why
not put an autodetect button, have the exception handler catch the crash
if arts decides to die, and then still have a popup dialog for when arts
is manually selected that tells users it is buggy and not recommended to
use? That doesn't fix your specific problem Jesse, I know, but at least
it keeps winecfg open when you click on the audio tab.
