RE: wine 1.3.8/ubuntu 10.10 crashes

Monkeyed around with it all day yesterday, and think it's not pulseaudio, but something funky with WoW executed with the opengl flag. I have the regedit for "OpenGL" as DisabledExtensions = GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object set.
Alternatively, removing the < SET gxApi "opengl" >, and starting WoW with -d3d seems to work. ~11-30 fps, everything seems fine except combat seems to lag the interface, when testing with a dummy in Darnassus. Regedit for "Direct3d" is
Since audio was not a problem, I installed the korn ppa wine1.3 for convenience. To address the combat lag, tried SET UIFaster "2" with no discernible change.
For the brief second that WoW runs with opengl, it seems like it would be smoking fast compared to direct3d. Are there any other extensions that can be disabled which would allow the game to run in opengl without crashing?
