[icecast] Metadata and icecast relay

Hi everyone
I'm sure I'm not the first to ask but I couldn't find the info in the
archives : is it possible to retrieve metadata such as current song title
when relaying a shoutcast server with icecast-1.3 (using aliases) ? Some
work fine (stream name, etc.) but i'd like to have access to the rest. I
already have use_meta_data set to 1 in my icecast.conf. Is there anything I
can do to retreive such data ?

Another thing : I tried to set up a separate config file for relays (easier
to edit with a script IMHO) using "include" in the original icecast.conf. I
found that I HAD to set the port option in both of the files to prevent a
segfault. And I could not prevent a segfault when rehashing from telnet (I
had to rehash exclusively from the console...). Anyone else experienced that

Thanks a lot
