[icecast] Icecast 2 for Live365 MP3 Relaying

this is probably caused by the lack of buffering in icecast2.  Their relay 
client may be doing some buffering in itself, and if it's expecting for 
there to be buffering on the server side as well, it might exhibit a 
behavior you are seeing....(that also is a difference between iceast1 and 
icecast2 - no server-side buffering in icecast2 and there was in icecast1)...

fwiw, I am trying to implement server side stream buffering right now, but 
it's not quite working as yet....This may address your problem, and it 
certainly will address the problems of clients having to do a serious 
amount of apparent buffering before listening to a stream.
