full screen windows break always-on-top

Using full screen task switchers like Flip 3D or Switcher 2.0 breaks 's always-on-top state.

Tested with a docked ClassicPro skin, and the default non-docked Big Bento skin.

Disabling then re-enabling always-on-top does not work, the only way to get always-on-top back is to exit then re-launch Winamp.

UPDATE
It's not just task switchers, any full screen window breaks Winamp's a-o-t function. Including viewing pictures fullscreen or pressing F11 in a browser.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)
Winamp 5.62 (5.6.2.3161)

Does it still happen after unchecking "Disable always on top while fullscreen apps are focused" in Prefs (Ctrl+P) > General Preferences?

You may want to look into this one at the same time > Unviewable Tooltips < seeing as it's also related to always-on-top. That thread has plenty of views but no one has responded yet.
