I've been in talks with Jörg for several weeks now trying to figure out
why it fails. I tried dozens of combinations of OS and drivers.
The hang is at the midiOutReset() call in test_midiOut_device().
Commenting that one makes it hang in midiOutClose(). Or at least the
last ok() message was just before those (as can be seen with
WINETEST_REPORT_SUCCESS enabled). This as said is not for the
synthesizer but for the 'real' device.
I always try to find out where things go wrong before trying to invent a
work around. At this point in time I can only point the finger at VMware
in combination with NT/W2K/XP (and the standard Creative driver).
W2K3 and Vista+ use a VMware audio driver and don't exhibit this issue.
Not sure why win9x doesn't have an issue.
My workaround works only for XP btw. so it seems that also needs a re-think.
On to more testing.
