BUG? winamp won't auto play at startup despite setting

XP
5.61

in prefs, go to "shell options" under file types.

there is a checkbox there that says "Start winamp playing if it is not already"

i have that checked, but when i quit and restart winamp, winamp does not start playing automatically. have i misunderstood the purpose of this checkbox?

if so, can someone please tell me how i can make winamp start playing automatically, (without using a batch file/shortcut that points to a static playlist file)?

the idea is to keep a local files smartview playlist (not a playlist file) going after a power loss for a webcast machine. when power is restored, winamp just starts playing the smartview again on boot. thx.
