Sound is not particularly delayed using ALSA on my systems, but
there's heavy (= once a second or so) sound corruption.

There's a practical existing solution to the sound problem, but
AJ (wine über boss) is very stubborn about not letting it into
the sources for some reason.  Perhaps because of some highly
hypothetical security issue, or perhaps there's a better reason
lurking somewhere.

There might be a theoretical (other) technical solution to the
problem, but it seems noone is aware of any, at least noone
has implemented any.

There's an unmaintained patch floating around somewhere which should
fix things, if you can get it to apply etc.

Yeah, I've been annoyed by this bug too.

Thanks for the hint.

I'm confused, though - why ?!
