I think you'll find that Winamp is written in C/C++ and therefore easier to have crashes. Dot Net does a lot of background nanny work in keeping an eye on memory pointers and so on to try and stop you making this kind of slip. Programming in C requires a lot more double checking. (And sometimes it can just be weird as to the unexpected side effects....)
