"BitLoker ToGo" and Winamp

There's a bug that make winamp freeze. this occur when you have a USB or other portable device and you used Windows 7 to enable "BitLocker To Go" feature on that device's disk. I guess Winamp is trying to store data on that disk, but BitLocker Fills the drive space with encrypted ones, so there's no free space.

This situation occurs when there's no "pmp_usb.inf" nor "winamp_cache_xxxx.xml" files, so winamp would question if you wanna use that drive as portable device. Doesn't matter witch button you press, winamp will try to store these 2 files on the disc, and if there's no free space, Winamp locks up.

I also guess this issue will occur on any write-protected portable device with no free space.
