Media key causes play/pause to toggle multiple times

I'm having an odd problem controlling foobar with my media keys. When I hit the play/pause button, instead of simply toggling whether the song is playing or paused, it toggles several times in quick succession. So if a song is playing and I hit pause, what it actually does is pause, then play, then pause, then play, then finally pause for good. (If a song isn't playing and I hit play/pause, then it does the same thing but in reverse.)

Additional info:
* This only happens with foobar2000; other media players play/pause normally.
* It only happens when the main foobar window doesn't have focus. If that windows is active, then the play/pause button works normally.
* The other media keys work as expected. It's only play/pause that has problems.
* The console gives no information.

Here are my installed components:

Perhaps whatever multimedia keyboard software you have running is detecting foo_vis_shpeck as a running instance of Winamp, and is sending play or pause commands to it as well as forwarding multimedia keys through global WM_APPCOMMAND messages.
