[icecast] icecast2 disconnects..

weird..I posted this a few days ago, but it never showed up...

anyway, here it is (again) :)

while we are talking about disconnects, I'll mention the fact that 
apparently when metadata song changes are done by a source (mine namely), 
icecast2 seems to want to disconnect each listener. I have confirmed that 
on metadata song changes, on the source client, no closing of the sockets 
are done, only logical vorbis bitstream closings....

you can see this very clearly by using wget on a icecast2 vorbis stream, 
and when my source client sends new metadata, wget exits immediately..so 
this is telling me that icecast2 is definately closing the socket...most 
people probably don't notice this much because I believe both winamp and 
xmms will immediately try reconnect at least once, which succeeds (and has 
the also unlikely effect of rebuffering many times)...

anyway, I would love to provide a patch for this for icecast2, as I am 
currently swamped with work, but I thought I would at least mention it....
