I have been compiling the development alsa-drivers because I use an X-fi card. They have worked great up until today. 
I use Ubuntu Studio. I installed it clean this morning, with default options. 
Then I purged pulseaudio (because pulseaudio does not work with wine) 
compiled and installed alsa-driver
set-default-card to Generic

asoundconf list shows the following
Names of available sound cards:
Generic (this of course is my X-fi card)

tried to run Audacity. 
Audacity only recognizes the Intel card. 

Installed wine. 
Wine shows the following:

MIDI Out Devices: Midi Through Port-0
MIDI In Devices: Midi Through Port-0
Mixer Devices: 
     HDA Intel
     HDA-Audio Generic

This may be a Ubuntu bug, but I wanted to run it by you first.
