Bug: Ratings read incorrectly from FLAC files

My experience is that Winamp rates FLAC files like this:

Selection in Winamp: Value of Vorbis Comment "Rating"
(no rating):Rating comment not written
1 star: 20
2 stars: 40
3 stars: 60
4 stars: 80
5 stars: 100

So it seems reasonable that Winamp should read and interpret the Rating comment like this:

Value of Vorbis Comment "Rating": rating shown in Winamp
0-19 or no rating comment: (no rating)
20-39: 1 star
40-59: 2 stars
60-79: 3 stars
80-99: 4 stars
100: 5 stars

Instead, the Vorbis Comment "Rating" seems to be misinterpreted for values 1 to 10, inclusive.

Value of Vorbis Comment "Rating": rating shown in Winamp
1: 1 star
2: 2 stars
3: 3 stars
4: 4 stars
5: 5 stars
6: 3 stars
7: 3 stars
8: 4 stars
9: 4 stars
10: 5 stars

Shouldn't there be no rating shown in Winamp for FLAC files with a Vorbis Comment rating less than 20?
