Ok, let me get this straight, its a client bug right ? (ie ices, MuSe) In 
that case I need to update my ices ? (I thought both ices and MuSe use 
libshout for client-server low-level comunication in which case this 
libshout would need to be fixed). I will contact MuSe and ices devs if 
this is the case... 

Another question, if this is some old/broken protocol, is there a libshout
version that supports some protocol to connect as a source to shoutcast,
icecast1, icecast2 ?
