Sorry, I was going to respond to this, but I've been busy and it got dropped

Yes, there's no source buffering. The design is such that it shouldn't be 
required. Icecast just sends incoming data on to the clients as fast as it 
recieves it - this works fine, so long as the eventual/final client has some 
buffering (they all do). 

A relay won't get dropped unless it's a long way behind - because on the 
sending side, there IS buffering.
