crash if playlist contains itself

Winamp 5.5.7.2943
Clean install, no 3rd-party skins or plugins
Language Pack: None (default English US)

OS: XP SP3
Locale: German
CPU/Memory: Atom N270 1GB RAM
Graphics: Intel Mobile 945
Sound: Realtek HD HD AUDIO VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_14620110&REV_1001
DirectX 10

Problem:
Winamp crashes if i (accidentally) try to load a m3u playlist which contains itself.

Method of Reproduction:
1. clean install
2. open a textfile "new.m3u" in notepad
3. write "new.m3u" in a single line
4. save and double click the file


OK, i must admit this is stupid but i managed to do it when i was generating a playlist with the "DIR /B /OD >new.m3u" dos command. The file happened to contain its own filename and i did not notice.

Tested it also on a Vista HP computer.

If it is a real bug it should be easy to fix (i think).

Thank you for your attention.

Martin
