Hello together

after trying to deploy one of the latest version out of the KH branch to 
our servers we ran into an issue with streaming of ondemand files.

After deploying 2.3.2-kh27.1 and also trying 2.3.2-kh24 and 2.3.2-kh22 
we see that if we try to stream an ondemand file through the fileserv 
option we get the ondemand file play back correctly and also see the 
appropriate file length in the player (WinAmp). if we seek in the file 
(jump to a later position in the file) the correct time code is sent to 
the server and also displayed in the client (WinAmp) but the stream 
always plays back from the beginning of the file.

The seeking and forwarding works correctly in the official version 2.3.2 
of the Icecast server.

I have not tried earlier versions than 2.3.2-kh22 and haven't found 
anything in the changelogs regarding the fileserv option. It also seems 
that the code of fserve.c has not been changed since the version 2.3.2.

Regards and Cheers
