the queue-size is the size (in bytes) of the internal buffer used for each 
client.  Clients (listeners) tend to lag here and there, and when they do, 
icecast will queue up the stream data on a client's queue.  It will queue 
it up to queue-size, and if it reaches that size, it will kick the client 
for excessive lagging.

make sense ?
