[Icecast] strange downloading occuring...

You'll want to use the form http://localhost:8000/ices.m3u as your player
needs to open the URL rather than be given the downloaded file by your
browser. As you've identified, if you just type http://localhost:8000/ices
into your browser, the browser will try and download your stream. And as
to why it downloaded so much, I think Ices 0.3 will loop your playlist - I
don't see any option for telling it to only play the files once.
