Voice on Linux - partway there

Somebody on the Linux Client Users group mentioned a wrapper script to run the Windows voice client in WINE, providing limited functionality of the voice client under Linux. I found the script attached to an issue in JIRA, then downloaded the Windows client, extracted SLVoice.exe and the libraries it depends on, and copied them into my secondlife directory.

It works... kind of. It takes forever to get connected to voice, and it disconnects after a very short time - but I did manage to hear somebody say part of a sentence!
