Yes, more precicely it's about how the alsa->pulse plugin tries to
identify different applications. It gets the real process name (the
loader), not the one wine changed to. The plugin could use that, but it
would also be nice if the plugin would take an optional argument to set
the name explicitly like on can with the pulse api.
