Your problem may be very similiar to mine.
It seems that alsa driver for 8x0 doesn't work with wine as intended in 
its default state, so you will need to specify
"HardwareAcceleration" = "Emulation" in [dsound] section of 
~/.wine/config. Unfortunately it leads to various sound glitches in some 
games/applications, namely Fallout 1/2 for example.
Fortunately, forcing alsa to use direct (no plugins) mode for wine works 
for me just fine without former option.
Just replace quake with wine-kthread or wine-pthread in example from
