RE: no key repeat, no sound

If you have Pulse Audio, you'll want to configure wine to use OSS sound. Then change the shortcut to start wine with the padsp command.
i.e.: "padsp wine /path_to/Wow.exe"
This will cause the OSS api to be redirected to pulse audio and may fix the sound issue. It will also enable you to use other sound applications (i.e. voip) simultaneously.
As far as key-repeat, that is working as intended. WoW automatically ignores key-repeat for action bars, as they do not intend for people to workaround the GCD. On some distros, like Ubuntu 9.10, the key-repeat from the OS is read as individual key-presses in wine, instead of key-repeats. This would cause the key-repeat to work on your action bar, but has undesirable effects like stuttered walking if you ever use the keyboard to move.
