Problem fixed with Swang's advice and dro from #winamptech@irc.p44.org

Solution if anyone else has same problem:

It was safe to delete the n3w*.* files from the ML dir, and the gen_undo folder is the result of backups from the gen_undo plugin, you can erase them by going to Prefrences > Plugins > General Purposee > Click Playlist Undo , then click the clear button and it will erase the files in the gen_undo dir for you, set a backup limit so it does not happen again in such a massive way.
