Hi Andrew,

I saw you modified the Audio tab of winecfg to let the user choose a device.
You're really doing a great job considering the mess behind it (audio 
architecture & drivers).

I tested the latest wine and noticed that when you click the "Test 
Sound" button, there is no error but if you do it again (or several 
times), there is a
err:winmm:WINMM_OpenDevice Activate failed: 80004005
on the console.

Harmless but probably worth fixing.
