Winamp ALT + TAB HELP!

Hey guys:

I'm having some minor problems with ALT+TAB-ing out of Winamp

When I alt tab, from Winamp to a Google Chrome window (for example), I can see the chrome window pop up, but Winamp remains on top of it. The only way to move Winamp it is to either manually minimize it with the button in the top right corner, or to press ALT + M. In other programs, ALT-TAB will completely switch to the other window, instead of sitting on top obstructing your view.

If I have winamp maximized, and I press ALT+TAB, I can't even see the the other windows. It just remains with Winamp maximized. The only time Winamp succesfully minimizes is when I ALT+TAB to my desktop.

Chrome was just an example, the same thing happens when I try to alt tab from Winamp to Skype, Winamp just sits on top and doesnt move out of the way.

Its a small isssue, but its getting increasingly annoying .

I've checked and unchecked the "Always on Top" option for docked toolbar, but it doesn't do anything. (I'm pretty sure that's not the fix anyway)

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.

Thanks for the help guys!
