MahCade locking sound card.

Is there anything that can be done to how MahCade handles music playback? I have issues under MahCade running some Linux Applications like Quake 4 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. MahCade will lock the sound card and not permit the game to play sound.

is that different to the old id software games not playing sound issue that was rampant a few years ago? had to build a launch script with a set of certain commands to get it running?

If Mahcade locks the soundcard for one app it should lock it for all, I'm guessing its probably something that can be worked around but I don't have either game for linux so can't test that here atm

There are planned changes to the sound handling only to address the lag in the list sounds but maybe that will suffice to address the above.
