[icecast-dev] playlist problem

Hi, I've had a few problems with broadcasting an icecast2 playlist with peercast. The problem is that when getting the m3u file, the response isn't terminiated with a newline (\n or \r\n). peercast doesn't particularily like this. 

I've submitted a patch to peercast for this, but I wonder if icecast2 should add the \r\n to the end. Maybe there's some more buggy software around that doesn't work as well (xmms does thankfully!). Anyway, here's a patch that does the trick.
