I'm running NTWS 4.0 SP3 as well, and winamp used to give me a BSOD
("TRAP_CAUSE_UNKNOWN") occasionally (sometimes 2 minutes into playing a
file, sometimes an hour.) It never occurred to me that the problem could
have anything to do with rc5des. I got rid of the problem by getting rid of
winamp and using Microsoft's mplay2.exe (beta version) instead. I haven't
gotten a single BSOD since.
