        I've installed icecast2 and ices2 on an OpenBSD box. It all
seems sane from the server side, but when I try to listen to my stream
from winamp 2.76 with Peter Pawlowski's vorbis plugin (1.12), from a
win98se box, nothing plays. Nothing is appended to the ices2 log, and
the following is appended to the icescast2 log (when I terminate

        (I believe the "recoverable error" occured when I hit stop on

        What should I do next? If you like, please try to listen to my
stream, http://netjam.org:7777/example1.ogg; I'll leave it running.

        Also, how do I get icecast2 to append to the log immediately, instead
of buffering messages and writing them all upon exit?
