Playlist from playlist generator with mixed types doesn't play all

Winamp 5.551 clean install (with NO 3rd-party plugins)
Winamp Language English US
Skin: first observed in Bento - no difference in other skins I tried.
Windows OS, Vista SP1 (up to date as of March 31/09)
System specs (mobo:?? - Dell D830 laptop, cpu: Intel core 2 Duo 2.2GHz, ram:4GB)
Video Card: Intel 965
Sound Card: built in
DirectX version DX10
Plugin (and version) affected by/causing the bug: Nullsoft playlist generator v1.2

A full, detailed, step-by-step method of reproduction:
My music library contains various file types including MP3 and WMA files. When I use the playlist generator to create a playlist "Play Files Similar To ...", only the MP3 files in the resulting list will play. In addition the wma files do not display any length information. However I can play the same files regardless of type if I choose them from the media library, or if I use Play->File (etc.) One exception - if the first file of the generated list is WMA then it will play and show file length - but no other WMA files in the list will play.

Have tried "reset" and new scan of the files - no change. The analysis phase moves very quickly and makes me suspicious.

The attached image shows a portion of such a playlist. All the files displaying a length are MP3, the others are WMA.
