Some dsound oddness

I had noticed a few weeks ago that sound for me on Riven was now having 
problems. It used to be almost perfect, but now it was suddenly doing 
things like changing pitch and speed, losing sync with the video, and 
breaking up.

Of course I initially suspected a regression, though no one else 
mentioned problems. I just now got around to spending a bit more time on 
it and found it was not a regression. I checked just about everything, 
including kernel and ALSA upgrades, before discovering that it was the 
file /c/window/QTW.ini.

It had previously contained:
[Sound 32]

And now contained:
[Sound 32]

Changing it back fixed the problem. I guess while I have it "fixed" now, 
if anyone had some additional enlightenment on what is going on here, I 
would be interested.
