What I can tell, that I could only make it work with a development snapshot
of vice (at least with Linux, no idea about Windows version: is there any
difference, sound output difference because of the different sound output
device, whatever).

what worked for me (again, with linux):

2.3.11, SVN revision I've tested with: 24920

I've downloaded the SVN snapshot (revision 24920, for sure it may work with
the head branch too, just this is what I've played with, and it worked for

I had to compile it myself, then it worked nicely for me. Thanks to Soci who
suggested me to try with a development snapshot.

Earlier versions produce no sound for me, or even vice crashed sometimes.
