You don't need a DSP stacker to make Winamp crash with the DSP flicker:

I did a complete and full default install of Winamp on Windows XP. I ran this test on both super Lite install (which did not include the SPS) and full install. I only saw it on the first start-up of Winamp after a clean full reinstall. For the longest time I couldn't figure that bloody thing out until I happened to accidentally double click on the title bar and it came up. It was like running Windows 3.1 again! I don't use the SPS so I'm probably not going to try it again as it's really a side bug to this thread context anyway but it did show the effect the DSP flicker was having on it. Every time it flickered it would pop back down minimized to the bottom left hand corner of my screen.

I reread the clean full reinstall instructions, looks like I misinterpreted them. GAH! I coulda' saved myself some headaches!
