all others applications flicker when winamp 5.5 is open!

THis is very strange.
All others applications flicker when winamp 5.5 is open!
Every few seconds, applications such as Total commander, vim and winscp flicker as if somebody was doing a forced screen refresh. It's very distracting.

I'm pretty sure it only happens when winamp 5.5 is open (even if minimized to tray).

If I close it, the fickering stops.

Anyone can replicate this?
If it's confirmed, that'd make winamp 5.5 the most unfriendly application in the neighborhood (come on, your application may do all the redrawing in the world, but let other applications alone!)

i'm pretty sure we would have noticed if this was happening to us.

have you tried updating your video card drivers?

are you using third party plugins?

are you playing videos or visualisations?

are you doing anything else that uses lots of resources?
