This problem is somehow related to the Icecast2 Burst-on-Connect mode and
how VLC handles this, or in this case doesn't very well.

I was told by one of the VLC folks that they need to change their HTTP
stream mode in the player to make this work correctly. I have been trying
to get a time-table for this fix, but have so far, been unsuccessful.
Unfortunately, the only fix is to disable Icecast2 Burst-on-Connect mode
for the time being to be VLC compatible.
