Winamp 5.8 - Memory Leaking issue

I set Winamp to play the same song (with repeat enabled) for more than 11 hours of uptime, and observed its private memory getting bigger and bigger over time.

As shown on the diagnostic screenshot, Winamp is leaking more memory the longer it is run for.
This is obviously unusual memory usage for a music player... (WMP doesn't have this issue.)
Shortly after 12 hours and 15 minutes of uptime, Winamp has allocated over 1GB of private memory.
I am running a clean install of the currently latest official Winamp (version 5.8 beta, build 3660) on Windows 10 (x64) system.
If there is anything else I can do to help solve this issue, let me know

Another report I found, possibly pointing out the same issue:

No you don't run an official winamp version , the last official version is 5.666
the one you are running is a leaked beta version.

Try a clean install of the last official version 5.666 and see if the problem is still there

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream
