that sounds reasonable with what has been assumed to be the likely cause of an incomplete write / update of the files which if the OS is trying to shut things down but there's the potential for Winamp to not enough time to do things (or it even gets halted part-way before Winamp is properly killed). unless the reboot was a an instant power-off event and then it's still likely but is harder to explain as there shouldn't have been a chance for Winamp to even attempt to start writing things out.

really a backup of the files is needed when a write / update happens (which is a better option and could be applied for _all_ database files) and / or like you mention a jic button like the library now has.
