Upgrade from 5.551 to 5.552 corrupted profile

This also happened when I upgraded to 5.551 from the previous version.

When I upgraded to 5.552 I could see winamp.exe process running in Task Manager but could not see Winamp on the screen. Everything was working on 5.551 fine.

I logged in as another user on the same machine and launched Winamp and all was OK, so I copied the "Winamp" directory from the users AppData directory over the top of my original user and all worked again (the idea of ditching my old user completely and creating a new user just to get Winamp working was all too much).

I wouldn't normally mention this, but this has now happened on two consecutive upgrades suggesting that something in the "Winamp" directory in the users profile gets corrupted during an upgrade.
