; AFAIK this is current with the SourceForge svn with the addition of that 1 patch to fix compatibility awhile back (also on SourceForge under submissions/patches).
And the issue, as I originally experienced it:

I can't say for sure, but it seems likely that the problem is caused by the FileSystemObject added in Party Shuffle v3.4 (which simply checks if a file exists) and some issue with the way it interacts with Playlist Undo's playlist backups/undo queue; so other ActiveWinamp scripts with FileSystemObjects may similarly cause this issue.
Disabling Playlist Undo (rename from .dll to .dll.off, etc.) will avoid/fix this issue.
Or if you prefer, you may revert to Party Shuffle 3.3
Be careful, however, once these bad entries are added to the undo queue, they will continue to remain in the queue and possibly delete files until they have exited the queue (even between seperate Winamp instances if you have Playlist Undo set to preserve the queue) or until the queue is cleared (which I've found also appears to delete files).
I apologize for this unforseen issue, I only just noticed it this week and have myself probably lost ~100 random songs over the last month until I discovered it. DrO has been informed and it will be looked into when he can find the time to see whether the fault lies with ActiveWinamp or Playlist Undo and hopefully come up with some kind of solution.
And yes, I realize ActiveWinamp is basically broken garbage at this point, but I was just hoping maybe you could nail down the WHY of it, seeing as the deletions are somehow directly related to files leaving the undo queue.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
