Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118550] New: Opening a document and pausing WinAmp regularly freezes XP
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 01:59:06 GMT

             Bug #: 118550
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Opening a document and pausing WinAmp regularly
                    freezes XP
    Classification: Code
           Product: performance
           Version: current
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: www

This has happened quite a few times. I classed it as "severe" because it is
very inconvenient: the only way to regain control is to push the "big red
button" and reboot XP without shutting it down.

However, how often people will encounter it is a different consideration. I
have encountered it primarily when opening an ODT file and, while it is
loading, hitting "Pause" in WinAmp so I can go get a snack while OOo is
loading. The computer then freezes.

This is what I think of as the "new, engorged WinAmp", as oppposed to the
older, and vastly smaller, WinAmp it replaced. This identifies itself as
"v5.621 (x86) - Jul 11 2011". I am currently working on shifting its duties to
a Squeezebox Touchpad, not just because of this problem but also because, every
time it "discovers" my antiquated EZ-135 drive (a removable cartridge disk
drive) it asks if it is a "music player" and, if so, offers to "manage" it. So
I expect the problem to vanish completely as soon as WinAmp does, say within
the next two weeks.

Of course, whether the problem is with OOo or WinAmp is something I cannot
tell. Perhaps, if you can reproduce the problem, you can determine which
program is responsible. If you cannot reproduce the problem, well, I have a DVD
drive that has been in use a long time and which appears to be failing --
although it seems to be associated with surprise rebooting rather than freezes.
So there may be more involved than I think.
