Maybe Winamp keeps a file open to prevent having to reopen it if the file is restarted after a pause or stop; or repeated (if that option is enabled).

Playing a 2nd file probably releases the previous file fairly quickly.

Also if you have the in_mp3.dll option enabled to store the entire mp3 file in memory before playing it (if enough memory is allocated for that purpose), you can see if disabling that option makes any difference.
