Making Screencaps with WMP and GIMP 2.2

I looked in the memories, but I couldn't find anything on this, so here it goes:

For some reason, every time I try to make a screencap with Windows Media Player and GIMP (version 2.2), it messes up.

Several strange things happen:

- After I've paused on WMP and used the "print screen" button to cap it, then pasted it onto a new GIMP image, I can see the whole screencap even after cropping it if I simply click on the screen and move it around

- After exiting WMP, the screencap (cropped or not) turns to black.

Does anyone else have this problem? And if so, how can I fix it, still using these two programs?
