[icecast] Ices2; Metadata and special chars

Hi there!

I am currently developing a broadcast solution with ices2 (feeded over pipe,
stdin). I use a metadata-file and signals to update the streams metadata.
The problem is, names of songs and artists are cut off at special chars like
& or at a german umlaut.

For example:
title=foo & bar
is sent to the clients as "Test - foo ".

Do i have to use some kind of escape-char or other special things or is this
just a bug? Btw, I am using IceS 2.0-Beta4.
