couple things :

1. I completely forgot to implement your fix, and my apologies for that, 
but I've updated the oddcastv2 code now and updated the wa2 plugin with 
this new code, so please try 
http://www.oddsock.org/tools/oddcastv2_wa2/oddcast_dsp_wa2_v2.0.5.exe and 
see if this fixes your issue... note that this is the wa2 version of oddcastv2
2. what version are you trying to compile ? wa2 ? wa3 ? The wa3 plugin code 
has not been maintained mainly due to the crappiness of wa3 and their 
incompatability between SDK releases, and the fact that Nullsoft is 
discontinuing it...the fact that you are getting assertion errors makes me 
think that you are trying to use the wa3 sdk (wa2 sdk didn't do 
assertions), in which case I'd recommend NOT using wa3. Also, I'd recommend 
that you make sure your using the most current CVS here 
http://cvs.casterclub.com/horde/chora/cvs.php?rt=CVS.ODDSOCK.ORG . You'll 
want the oddcastv2_wa2_xmms module.
