I help maintain the AppDB page for PS:T but I'm currently unable to do much 
since I made the transition to the Debian pure AMD64 and as such wine 
doesn't compile for me any more (a known issue on 64-bit machines I 
believe). Anyway I'm afraid that I never had any problems with sound so I 
don't know what to suggest on that front.

Except what sound driver are you using in wine? I'm not sure where to look 
if you are using the registry but in ~/.wine/config the lines are in the 
[WinMM] section.

But if you do find a solution in the mean time then please let me know so I 
can update the AppDB page to help future users.

On a slightly different note I'd suggest keeping an eye on GemRB[0]. It's
an open source engine replacement for the Infinity Engine games (PS:T,
BG 1&2 (inc exp packs) and IWD 1&2). Currently the games aren't playable
but progress has been steady and looks very promising indeed.
