Everything except that listed in the "What does not work" section.
What does not
Sound effects during the game are sometimes a little slow and distorted.
The problem is solved by turning on Driver Emulation in Wine's audio settings; strangely after I turned it off again, the sound didn't go back to being distorted, but this introduces another problem; the sound lags noticeably. It's not a major problem, but it is a little annoying, I'd recommend turning the Sound Effects volume down to 0 in the game's options menu. I would expect that the music lags also, but it's not as easy to tell, as the music is not driven by game events.
What was not tested
I don't own a full copy of the game so I was unable to submit my score online, I did however watch a replay downloaded from the internet by the client, so I know it can connect to the server.
My original music problem was my own mistake. I had the tetris website open while I did the test, and didn't realise the music playing in the background was from there not the game! Although in fairness it's the same music. Oh well, there's one less problem.

Cleaning up the Distorted Sound
Open Wine's Configuration dialog, by finding it in your distribution's programs menu, or by running "winecfg" from the terminal.
Select the "Audio" tab, located near the top of the dialog box. It may take a while to display.
Near the bottom of the dialog, you will see a box labelled "DirectSound", in there select the checkbox labelled "Driver Emulation".
Click "Apply" to apply the changes.
