Memory leak when when starting/ending mp3s with apev2 tags

Spent a few hours until I finally found it's the tag that was causing my memory leak.

Steps to reproduce on my machine: load mp3 with apev2, press & hold 'B' until winamp.exe reaches 200+MB ram usage (shouldn't take more than 4-5 seconds)

//dell inspiron 5520, windows 7x64, clean winamp install
(drivers 1-2 years old mostly dell proprietary.. keeping them, unless dell updates them)


Is this a known issue? Is there anything I can do except remove the tags from my mp3's?

update
sorry for not checking more before posting...

it's not the tags that cause it, but the encoding. Deleted only the records that contained Hangul/korean while keeping the other apev2 records intact and the problem went away.

i think an info report is ideally needed (as mentioning 5.65 + "5.601 files copied from an old backup" concerns me that it's not being done against a 5.65 install (which is all we can support) -> see http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....161361#plugins

plus would be ideal to have a small example file which you're able to replicate the issue consistently with (and so hopefully we can as well).

[edit]
your second post wasn't there when i'd started to reply, if it's to do with the encoding, then an example file really is needed.

i've got the file now and am able to replicate some weirdness with the file though what is the cause of it i won't know until i can debug into it further - at least i'm able to see weirdness which is better than what i'd expected i.e. not being able to replicate it.

Thank you a lot! for the support and the confirmation. At least I know now that there isn't anything serious broken on my machine..
Been using Winamp since I remember myself, even if only for the 'J' and 'Q' functionality and the small CPU footprint, but even for this I couldn't find anything that beats it Keep the good work!

P.S. Could you please post a reply once you get a hang of what was happening? It got me quite curious.
