I am sure you bug report has gotten or will get the proper attention it deservers. However, Nullsoft is suffering from a temporary (hopefully temporary) lack of coders. So, don't hold you breath.

No coders. No fix.

Christophe, Francis & Mig all quit after 5.04 release.
Justin (winamp creator) and Brennan & Aus (wasabi) were already gone, around 5.01/2 release.

Peter (now fb2k) was looking after in_mod up until 2.8x, then X-Fixer (who seems to have vanished off the face of the earth) for 2.9x.
Christophe fixed a major security issue (buffer underrun vulnerability) for 5.02 and also made it so it saved settings to winamp.ini instead of the registry. Apart from that, no other changes have been made to the working in_mod.dll code.

David Biderman, Tom P & Tag are the only coders left at the moment...
Tom & Tag are mainly Shoutcast devs, and David is the project manager and mainly just fixes & compiles the builds. None of them are greatly familiar with certain aspects of the 2.x/5.x api (not like Justin, Christophe & Francis are/were anyway)...
