Various problems with newest version


I've been using winamp for years and years, I'm glad to see someone is bringing it back. However when I went to install the latest version on a new computer, I ran into a slew of strange problems in the short time before I had to just go back to 5.666. There might have been more that I didn't use it long enough to find.

I am on Windows 10

1. Prevents shutdown. If I forgot to close it out, it seemed to act like an open, unsaved document and completely block my computer from turning off.

2. CD Burning. In 5.666 I simply right-click on any album or playlist and choose "send to CD burner." In 5.8 this option was missing. I could not for the life of me figure out how to burn a CD.

3. Window location did not save. I like to keep the player tucked into the bottom right corner of the screen, with the playlist connected on the left and the media library on top of those (Winamp Modern skin). in 5.666 the window arrangement would save when I close the player, and it would be in the same place when I open it again. In 5.8, the player would always default to appearing in the top left every time I reopened it.
