How to fix and study the bug:

* - The cdda library only reserves 20 bytes for names when files are "*.cda"
* - run Winamp with ollye
* - when loaded locate and break at:

10009BBB 8D4C24 20 LEA ECX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+20]
10009BBF 84C0 TEST AL,AL
10009BC1 74 0F JE SHORT in_cdda.10009BD2
10009BC3 3C 2E CMP AL,2E
10009BC5 74 0B JE SHORT in_cdda.10009BD2

that code copies and overwrites the stack if no '.' is found in the 
first 20 bytes of the m3u entry. Entry must not have #EXTINF data or 
it won't resolve.

* - name that entry like "C:\\1234567890abXXXX.cda" and xxxx will be your return address. 
stack will be overwritten and exception occurs. When going out of that exception you'll be launched to padding.
* - look for .data section of in_cdda.dll and locate the shellcode or string, and update if needed the
field Location of shellcode (see host info). In my case it's x1002355b.
