[Wine] Sound skips in all games since Wine 1.1.6

In 1.1.5 the sound/music in games played allright. Since 1.1.6 it skips badly - plays for a couple of seconds, then stops for half a second, then plays again, then skips and so on. Happens on every game on Steam - Team Fortress 2, Everyday Shooter, Peggle Extreme - and also without Steam - Icy Tower.

I have Razer Barracuda AC-1 sound card. I've found that in Winecfg when I choose Alsa driver it says "HDA Intel" under the Mixers, instead of C-Media CMI8788 (which is the name of the chipset). I guess HDA Intel is the sound card chipset built into my motherboard.

Does anyone have similar problems? How can I fix it? I tried uninstalling PulseAudio, but then I had no sound at all.

(I'm on Ubuntu 8.04.)
