I think the icecast docs somewhere say that this is the case - that due to 
bugs in winamp (and some other clients), you'll need your URLs to end with 
".ogg". You _might_ (I haven't tested this!) be able to do this with a 'fake' 
url parameter, like: http://server:port/myscript.php?makewinampwork=file.ogg
