as to the actual issue, like i said i don't think winamp actually makes a "permanent cache" but what i think it does do, is cache art into ram as you browse it, and then thats all lost once the app is closed. thats why i think i see my ram fluctuates and grow over time, as i scroll thru the art. but whats confusing then is why mega art is crashing the app only when scanned in big enough doses, (during scanning)? i wonder if winamp is actually loading all the art into ram prior to writing the DB, altho i can't understand why it would do that since it only seems to access the art on demand?
Ah, This is better.

Now if we can figure out how to test for these possibilities. Or better yet, get a dev to provide the answers. Then at least we would know what's going on.
