Possible to make Winamp forever unusable

If you go into the configuration menu and make the Library, Playlist, and Main windows disapper, you are now stuck with a very unusable Winamp. In Win 7 you can still find the tray icon and by hovering over it you can do some rudimentary things, but it is almost impossible to get it back. With a lot of hunting, I finally was able to bring up the right click configuration menu. OH, and alt-W also doesn't work. In the Bento skin, killing Winamp and starting it again doesn't work either.

Perhaps an extra obvious restore button needs to be in the minimized window so the foolish user who did this can get it back. Actually being able to make it seem to disappear is a reasonable thing, sort of like minimization, but minimization can be undone easily. Another possibility is to have the option just minimize Winamp.

As I pointed out in another post there are too many gotchas in Winamp, which can immediately turn off a user.
