I fixed my soundproblem with a "workaround"

In my /usr/local/games/ut2003/System folder
I removed the supplied "openal.so" with this symlink
lrwxrwxrwx    1 joffe    users          29 Apr 25 02:16 openal.so -> 

The file libopenal.so.0 is from the CVS version dated yesterday...

I really don't know what I've done...but it's working :D
But I'm gonna download the tarball and grab the newer openal.so...
