A strange bug

First, sorry admins/mods if this has already been posted. I'm lazy and don't want to look through the forum to see if it has.

Ok, I recently reinstalled WinAmp (Got a virus, reformatted, but forgot to back up my stuff) and so instead of using my old WinAmp 5.3 installer that I would have used had I backed up my stuff, I went to download the latest WinAmp (winamp 5.8d) and I've noticed a bug.

When I hut the x to close winamp, it doesn't terminate the winamp service (otherwords, it's still running.) Then, if I try to open up winamp again, it will start running multiple times according to the ctrl-alt-del service list (EVEN THOUGH I have it set to disallow multiple instances), AND none of them will appear. The only way to fix that is to ctrl-alt-del, end all the WinAmps running, and then restart winamp again. Someone want to take a look into this bug?

P.S. How come shoutcast doesn't work with NAT?

Sorry, but no-one can reproduce this problem.
And no, it's not been reported before.

Please read the following:

Please confirm a clean install of Winamp 5.08d with NO 3rd-party plugins.

If the problem persists, post a HijackThis log (see first link for details).

ps. post Shoutcast questions/issues in the Shoutcast forum.

I have just seen this too. I am running Windows 2000 and just did a clean install. From a fresh reboot, playback is fine. As soon as I hit stop, then play again, nothing happens. I try to close winamp and the window goes away, but a quick look at task manager shows me that winamp.exe is still running. Explorer.exe freezes until I kill the process. At first I thought it was a problem with shoutcast streams, but it does it with the llama test mp3. Perhaps its an issue with my nforce2 sound drivers?

Yes, it infact was my sound drivers. I downloaded the actual sound codecs off of nvidias website, updated the drivers thru device manager and problem is gone (so far). Eqdw, i suggest downloaded the latest drivers for your soundcard.
