Winamp 3 forcibly backwards-compatible?

I thought I'd give the new WA a go, so I downloaded version 3
and found an odd bug with it. Upon running for the first time
each system boot, it hangs my machine and must be closed

It also hangs my Zonealarm, making me think it's trying to connect
somewhere. Anyway, once I go through this, it works fine. But
it's hella annoying, so I reinstalled Winamp 2.8.

Same problem. Even going back to really old releases... 2.78
and earlier. What did Winamp 3 do to my machine? I've had to
uninstall it and find a replacement in the meantime.

Yeah it does connect to the internet if you have it set to check for new updates on each start or if you have it set to report usage stats. Just some info from one user to another. Although winamp2 does this very same thing, and you probably already knew that. No clue on the rest. Maybe if you post some of your machine's hardware specs someone else could help. In any case, have fun.
