Windows 7 WM player stutter during streaming playback

Again, not solved, just convinced enough that it’s a bug in WMplayer (12.0.7600.16415 – WTF type of version number is that?)

I can live without wmplayer but was wondering if there’s a more fundamental problem that could affect use of other tools for media playback, Wmplayer statistics (yeah, good luck figuring out how to get WMplayer out of brain dead mode to the point where you can get to the statistics menu) would show no dropped/lost frames, but the sounds was skips/jumps maybe averaging 1/minute.

Everything else (VLC, Quintessential, Nero) plays fine.
