Pause behavior when listening to streams

It seems that when I pause a stream playing in Winamp it keeps the buffer in memory rather than buffering from what is currently playing. Then when I hit play it plays the buffered amount of audio from the stream (the next 5 or so seconds from when I paused it) and then picks up the current stream, which is rather jarring. I'd rather it just picks up where the stream is now, or rebuffers right then, or best of all rebuffers while it's paused (basically just muting the stream). Any other way than the way it seems to be doing it would be better ... any settings to fix this?

Yup, that's how it works. You can also hit stop and then play again later.

Weird, that doesn't make logical sense... but ok. The reason stopping is annoying is because I have a keyboard with a play/pause button but no stop button ... so stopping the stream is an extra step.

Wow - that is unusual - most keyboards I have seen have both a play/pause AND a stop button.
