Hello. My name is Tomoaki Abe. I'm a manager of a Japanese
Internet Broadcast Station. I'm here to report a problem about
Sorry for my bad English.
The following is a brief summary of the problem.

software, oftentimes we experience troubles connecting.
[issues with zero](sorry we don't know the particular name for this
We have no clue of why this is happening. $B!!(B
Suppose when two or more numbers (or mount points) are missing, only the
number subtracted by 1 from the latest mount point number is available for
When only one number is missing, all the other mount points become
In other words, (note: the left side indicates the numbers that are taken)
icy_0 , 1 , 2 $B"*(B mount point 3 is available
icy_ 2 $B"*(B 1 becomes the only available mount point
icy_1 , 2 $B"*(B all other mount points become totally
icy_0 , 2 $B"*(B all other mount points become totally
This problem occurs no matter which number it starts from. Due to this
problem, a lot of times we have to disconnect to start all over with 0, in
order to allow other users to start their broadcast. We found that quite
inconvenient. Hopefully you will consider this problem. Thank you.
