Yes, stopping PA and using alsa directly probably works best.

The other options are either using the alsa->pulse plugin or the oss
wrapper of pulse. When I tested it the alsa->pulse plugin worked fine
with the applications running under wine I tested, but you need to
configure alsa correctly and there are still a few known problems (so it
doesn't work as good for everything as directly using alsa). I didn't
test the oss wrapper and I don't think it's usefull to invest time in
that, the alsa->pulse plugin is the way to go.
