Ok. Now this may be some kind of Wine-Pulseaudio incompatibility again. So what we're going to do is use Wine's settings to force it to use the duplex_for_pulse device, instead of the default one, which points to pulse.

This is farily easy, according to the ALSA keys in http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys

For instance here's an example:

[Software\\Wine\\Alsa Driver] 1315011634

However, I think you might run into an issue due to not having defined a ctl.duplex_for_pulse, but we'll get there. For now just create those entries so that they match this. BTW, it isn't advised, but you can paste that snippet in the ~/.wine/user.reg file at the end (be sure to back it up first!) and it should work. To make sure you're testing wine's sound, do a wineserver -k and then open up winecfg to test the sound.
