No, you are miying things up: If you are using the winealsa driver you
don't need oss emulation (assumed that you hano other programs needing
oss emulation). But my problem is, that I don't want to use the
winealsa driver as it is not as far implemented as the wineoss driver.
But *if* I use the wineoss driver and my Wine app is accessing the
device it is locked for all other programs. That' not really a problem.
But if another ALSA program is already accessing the device it is
locked for the WIne program. Only different ALSA programs can access
the device together via dmix.
