[icecast] Alrighty.. ALMOST there! :)

So, a friend pointed me to the patch for sock.c:533, and that patch went a
LONG way in fixing the streaming problems I've been experiencing (on
solaris 8/sparc.) Thanks so much for that!

Now, I think that *sending* the stream is now squared away, but I think
one problem remains on the receiving end of things.

I use the perl streamcast utility to stream my playlists, and tracks sound
great. But sometimes when the tracks change, the new track will get
regular half-a-second audible gaps - no studdering or repeats - just gaps.

Sometimes it'll persist through the next track... sometimes it clears up
when the next track starts.

My hunch is that icecast wants/expects a constant incoming stream of data,
and I think if there are any gaps in the incoming stream, it messes it up.
It's plausible that the track change is what's causing thes very short
gaps in the incoming stream data, and then persist at regular intervals in
the outgoing stream to clients for the remainder of the track.

Any thoughts?
