CPU: Intel Pentium III 700 MHz
RAM: 256 MB
Soundcard: SiS 7018 Wave
Videocard: SiS 630/730
OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise (with all updates)
DirectX: 9.0b
Winamp: 5.05 clean (full) install

1) launch Winamp
2) CTRL+P (Winamp Preferences), General Preferences, Media Library, Modify Preferences, Limit number of listings fetched to 10000 streams
3) ALT+L (to show Media Library)
4) Refresh
5) Click on any stream

At this point (sometimes even on 4th), Winamp uses 90% up to 100% of CPU, and it's no longer responsive.
The only way to get it working again is to kill it via Task Manager.
And the other problem is, that even when I change the limit back to 500 streams (default value), it's still using ~80% of CPU, especially on step 5.

Any suggestions (other than "decrease your limit", please...)?
