I am using 1.3.12+patch at the moment. That patch I have on it was the
one I submitted earlier which fixes the problem with the wrong
arguments passed to snprintf in the avl code. That shouldn't affect

I'm fairly certain it's a change in winamp. I'm not yet sure I want
to tell nullsoft that they've busted icecast streaming. ;)

Can you refresh my memory as to what this bug involved?

I wasn't complaining. I was attempting to see if anyone else had seen
this problem.  

Besides, they've made some rather absurd claims about software which
leads me to believe they are less competant than those here. ;)

User agent was "WinampMPEG/2.7" now it's "WinampMPEG/2.8". Is there
a way to get more information?

A neighbor asked Nasrudin to borrow his donkey. "It is out
on loan," said the Mulla. At that moment the donkey was
heard to bray, somewhere inside the stable. "But I can hear
it bray, in there."

"Whom do you believe," said the Mulla, "me or a donkey?"
