I'm having trouble running programs with Wine 20030219.  I managed to install 
half-life about a month ago and got it to start, but would freeze when 
starting a new game.   I finally got back to trying it again a few weeks ago 
and I'm getting some strange behavior.  If I start half-life without anything 
occupying the sound device /dev/dsp the program fails to start and displays 
the following error on the console:
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetIdeInterface not implemented for BSD
fixme:reg:GetSystemInfo not yet supported on this system
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x2813f664 
"../../loader/module.c: loader_section" wait timed out, retrying (60 sec) 
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...
err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("debugger/winedbg 8 88") (2)
Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger
Now if I'm using the sound device and start half-life it starts right away, 
but obviously with no sound.  This behavior is reproducable and it is 
happening with other applications, ie when I try to install Warcraft 3.

Thanks for any help, and let me know if/what information I need to provide.
