Winamp mangling MIDI when other apps try to play song

I've had several problems with winamp 2.xx doing this..typically it's only with MSN Messanger, when it tries to make a noise while winamp is either playing an MP3 or a MIDI

what happens appears to be one of two things:

when a mp3 is palying, the sound of MSN notifying me a msg was sent to me fades into a distorted sound and goes away

when a midi is playing, the whole sound is distorted and sounds like someone blowing their nose

The MSN thing sounds like you have the Directsound plugin with the crossfader enabled (version 2.8). If youchange the WaveOUT plugin, it should solve it (but you will not have your fadeout).
