To be honest, I have no idea. If there's a way I could check this out
for you, please tell me how I should do it.

Obtw, I just had another try to get icecast2 running - this time using
the linux emulation. I used the ninary I compiled under Linux + the
Linux libraries that are used by it. Icecast2 segfaults, but I can offer
a ktrace.out (or a text version made with kdump). If anyone's interested
in that, I can mail it to him or the list.

Sounds beautiful, I'll try that.

A well-thought out playlist doesn't need crossfading, true. But if your
station is kinda "interactive" (like, you've someone in an IRC chat and
you want to show them a couple tunes or they prefer to listen to
something else, etc), crossfading eliminated the ugly breaks between
tunes when skipping tracks in the middle of a song. That's when I find
it useful ... or course not for "real" streaming in production
environments, but the former is what I usually do with my weak upstream.

Maybe it'd be an idea for Ices3 or so (in the far future, of course) to
feature plugin support, so others can upgrade it with features they need
and you don't want to bother yourself with?
