    Winamp limited to 1000 streams?

    I like to listen to internet radio because Milwaukee radio sucks. I use Winamp all the time with the Winamp Library to access all of the Shoutcast streams. I noticed recently that when I start up Winamp, it only downloads 1000 streams. WTF? It used to download something like 9800 streams...
