You cannot rename a file while it is still open. In order to do this you have to wait until the application gives up ownership of the file(releases the handle) and in general this happens when the file has been fully buffered.
I'm guessing WMP continues to buffer the full file immediately and releases the handle almost straight away whereas Winamp uses a limited input buffer and generally needs to finish playing first.

To get around your problem you will need to go to Prefs > Input > Nullsoft MPEG audio decoder > Config > General > Full File Buffering and increase the lower limit to 99999.

Note that this only applies to mp3 and aac.

wma should work OK as it uses the same playback as WMP, but other formats you will need to wait for the track to end.
