[icecast] icecast strangeness...

I've been trying to figure out as to why sometimes connections are
properly negotiated and sometimes not.

For example, using mpg123 as a client, I point it at my server
        Directory: http://live.wuga.org/
        Playing MPEG stream from  ...
        MPEG 1.0 layer I, 96 kbit/s, 44100 Hz stereo
        Illegal Audio-MPEG-Header 0x62dd8776 at offset 0xfffffffb.

It has improperly negotiated the connection and immediately craps out.

I try again:
        Directory: http://live.wuga.org/
        Playing MPEG stream from  ...
        Junk at the beginning fffa2f7f
        MPEG 2.5 layer III, 16 kbit/s, 11025 Hz mono

And it has this time properly negotiated the stream (MPEG 2.5 layer III,
16 kbit/s, 11025 Hz mono) and subsequently will play just fine. However,
I have been unable to determine the pattern of this as sometimes it
works the first time, others the second, others the third, etc.

There is nothing peculiar looking in the icecast logs.

I am running CVS of icecast-1.3.11


thanks in advance.
