This is because of the priority of the SETI client, which is set to normal.
The RC5 client priority is low by default. BTW, try to increase the priority
of WinAmp to high, this should address the problem. Don't set it to
realtime, as the OS doesn't allow it to be run at this priority level (at
least my WinNT doesn't), and sets it to normal instead.
