[icecast] Too many "too many errors"

I have a patch that will fix your stuttering problem, apply to version

In src/sock.c line 533, replace the original line (return n;) with

       return (t==0) ? n : t;

This will not help you if your client is legitimately not able to
receive data fast enough, but should correct the stuttering.

If you want more information, or a "proper" patch, let me know.


   $ egrep "Too many errors" icecast.log | wc -l
   $ egrep "client not receiving data fast enough" icecast.log
   $ egrep "Accepted" icecast.log.0 | wc -l

   Hmm. I tried a windows laptop box (kinda slow) and indeed after about
   30-40 minutes playback starts stuttering and eventually disconnects
   from the icecast server.

   Nothing else is running on this box. What gives? Why am I losing about 
   25% of the connections to this error?
