Fixed the default capture device bug.

The double-speakers I'm not so sure about. It's possible the system just 
has two devices with the same name, and I'll just need to append a count 
to it to differentiate them like is done with the DSound backend. Can 
you set the ALSOFT_LOGLEVEL environment variable to 3 when you run 
openal-info32.exe, and let me know what the output is?
