I do not have to click for the ghost seek bar to be there. Wherever my mouse moves over the seek bar, the ghost button appears and moves with my mouse as fluidly as if it were an intended function of the program.

I see a use for it. I just don't want it.

The use is as you play a song, you can locate a certain part by moving your mouse over it during playback and the thost bar remains there (unless you move the mouse over another section).

I just don't want the dang thing.

It might be useful to have a screenrecording of this as I personally have a hard time imagining this

Not needed as you're static image is already showing how it'll appear all the time.

I may have cleared it up. I've had it for... as long as I've had Wacup, which is almost a year I guess. Anyway, I switched skins multiple times today and trying the same skin again, it seems to be gone. After some playback, it came back. So if I switch skins, and return to this one, it goes away. I'm now convinced the ghost seek bar is what's bugged, specifically.

Update: I have more info. It seems it sometimes begins to separate both seek bars when I use Global Hotkeys to skip through a song. But it doesn't begin having a second ghost bar every time. Once it does, it is there to stay until I switch the skin back.

So as long as I use my Winamp Modern Skin, the bug is there. No fix for it I have found.

I've yet to look into this again (am preoccupied with trying to take over the remaining parts of the classic skin handling from Winamp) but if it's only being triggered in a certain manner & just for that skin then either it's just an oddity with the modern skin engine (likely as it often doesn't initiate things into a known state) or there's an issue within the winamp modern skin script files related to how the seeker bar is managed. I've made a note to have a look at the skin scripts when I've got more time to do so unless anyone else following this has the time able to do it before I can do it.

In the times of me attempting to cause this deliberately, there's no way for me to trigger it in any circumstance.
My next guess would be something related to the mouse driver or something else hooking in to the process
