The decoding engine of Winamp v2.22 is based on the Fraunhofer MP3-decoder (as you probably know, the Fraunhofer institute in Germany actually invented and developed the MP3-format), so its sound quality is very solid. Yet it has some bugs, e.g. that nasty "playlist-jumping-bug-when-using-VBR-files". It also uses quite a lot CPU power, IMHO .
That particular bug with LAME-encoded MP3s you are referring to is not present in the in_mp3.dll taken from Winamp v2.22. It was "just" a bug that is present in the original version 2.72 of Winamp's MP3-decoder. Yet the v2.72 release is bundled with a fixed version of the decoder (called 2.72b).
You should not have any problems with your current Winamp setup at all, if you ask me .
