we actually fixed this issue a while back... A continue was added (line 459 
of stats.c) which will skip the thread_sleep in the case where there are 
pending global events..

also, the global_event_queue pointer has a mutex lock wrapped around access 
to it, which your (Ricardo) patch didn't have.

I think it is a fair statement that we regularly and welcome patches from 
everyone.  But we also reserve the right to not apply them directly, 
especially when there are objections from the development team.  Statements 
like "I've been running this patch forever, and it works great for me" 
generally doesn't help as usually the objections are of a "this wont work 
in all cases" or "you rewrote stuff you didn't have to".

Anyway, hopefully we can move on from this, as your complaints :
A. icecast needs some sort of burst on connect
B. the DoS patch you sent in never got incorporated
are no longer valid since we are currently in process of implementing A, 
and we fixed B (even though we didn't use your patch).
