Lucky you, I tried the same and the program crashed. On next restart 
though the sound worked w/o crackling, but when entering options the 
program crashed again. So no solution for me.

Btw, sry for suspecting the "wine-fake". I checked this and proved 
myself wrong: no active wine process while prey is running.
