'BEX' crash when playing some MP3s upon update to v5.666 (Info Tool log in the post)

Upon updating Winamp to v5.666, when I play certain MP3 files, Winamp will always crash. Those files played fine on pre-5.6 versions. I've tried uninstalling Winamp and deleting its folder in Program Files and %AppData%\Roaming, restarting the computer and then installing it again, but the issue persists.

I am running Winamp on an administrator account on Windows 7, 64-bit. Link to download of one of the MP3 files that causes Winamp to crash: http://www.mediafire.com/download/61d060qb656wr9n/ I played this through KMPlayer and Windows Media Player, and it seems to play fine. Most of my other MP3 files play just fine through Winamp, though.

Quoted below is the Windows crash log, and attached is the Winamp Info Tool log (Winamp is newly installed):

Hi BunkFace,

Winamp is more sensitive to structural errors in digital files than other apps. According to MP3 Diags (link below) the file you provided has a broken stream in it. Let MP3 Diags 'fix' a copy of the file to see if that helps.

Thanks! Fixing the broken streams seems to have worked with the affected files. Winamp doesn't crash when playing them anymore.

I'm glad it worked for you. Some users feel Winamp is too sensitive to certain errors, since other apps are able to handle (or ignore) them.
