to see how the cygwin sound support works and to compare cygwin performance in
some cases I have created a patch for the xfree game rocks & diamond from
http://www.artsoft.org/rocksndiamonds to enable the game on cygwin/xfree.

Now it runs with limited sound support:

1. Stopping of musics does not react immediatly (need about 20-30 seconds to
2. Delay on playing sounds (you can verify it with tutorial level 000)
3. While playing sound there are some unexcepted noise
4. cygwin uses a fixed buffer size of 16384. r&d like to use a 512 byte buffer,
which cygwin does ignore.
   This causes delay in 1.

To get it running for yourself, download the unix 2.0.0 src and apply the
appended patch.

Have fun
