Well, I'd definetly try to copy the dll from a windows partition (I have
mine mounted on /windows for reasons like this).  I'd also fool around
with "winecfg" and see if adjusting the audio settings works.

It wouldn't hurt to do:

WINEDEBUG="loaddll" wine yourprogramname.exe

and see if SOUND.DLL is being loaded native or builtin.
