[Wine] World of Warcraft - ATi 8.41.7

I just re-tested and using -nosound does not seem to make any difference.

wine WoW.exe -opengl (with or without -nosound) gives:

I can see the buttons and the particle effects at the login screen (my WTF
file has pixelshaders disabled)

wine WoW.exe (directX mode):

I can see the entire screen, but it will run, say 20 frames smoothly then
hiccup, 20 frames+hiccup etc.

Not sure if there is anything I can do to improve it, I tried setting nice
-15 but it did not seem to make much difference to it.  I also do not know
if I should not be using D3D anyway.  Lastly I tried setting SET
M2UseShaders "0" in my WTF file and openGL rendered completely but now has
the same "hiccup" problems D3D has.
