Can anyone explain what the fundamental difference between the 
Burst-on-Connect mode that Icecast2 uses versus SHOUTcast?

There is a thread starting on the VLC Player list that is stating that the 
problems that VLC has playing Icecast2 Burst-on-Connect (default) streams 
is the fault of Icecast2.  I don't believe this is true, as Winamp has no 
problem with Icecast2 streams.  I'm hoping to get an explanation so that I 
can tell them what needs to be addressed in the VLC Player.
