Hey atle,

I don't think that is the case, as i always upgrade wine/compile new
versions, and never run into that.

Well, you do have multiple audio devices, do you specify which loads first????

For example, on my system the IntelHDA card is the first, while my
AkaiMPK49 loads second. If i don't have this configured, then if i
leave my USB-midi keyboard plugged in on boot. it will think that it's
the 1st device.  Then, i won't be able to start Jack-audio. as It will
fail, and throw errors...but this way, the default will grab the right
device.  That is probably why i never had issues with wine's defaults.
My defaults for my system, reflect exactly what i want.

options snd_hda_intel index=0

this is placed in a .conf file, in /etc/modprobe.d   (on some distro's
it is /etc/modules)

You might want to do something similar if you end up having issues,
now that you are using both your soundcard, and your graphics card's
