Hi Nick,

Sorry for not replying to your private email earlier, I was on vacation for a
while. I wrote the patch for static file offsets, and although I'm not
currently using it, it did work properly when I submitted it. Which version
of icecast are you using (or did you grab the CVS tree)?

I seem to remember running into this problem because of icecast's function
named split_string (or something similar... it's been a while). It's possible
that part of the patch didn't make it into the official icecast distribution.
I'll try to find a moment to investigate in the next couple days. If the
icecast maintainers are interested, I can make another patch against CVS.
