All were related, if I remember correctly, to a problem in the Linux 
Kernel.  Not a whole lot that the Wine project can do to fix a stuffed 

Also, the number of sound problems encountered on my Intel Mac is 
exactly ZERO that I have not caused myself.  Of course the Mac is smart 
enough no to use a broken sound system, either.

OpenAL support is a WIP and was suspended for the code freeze.  Not all 
of it was implemented and if you are using Linux, probably not at all.

Again, the studdering/crashing was and still is not a Wine issue.  You 
need to visit Bugzilla more often.
