I am trying to determine exactly what the difference in Burst-on-Connect is 
between SHOUTcast and Icecast2.  There are a number of players that are 
having difficulty with the Icecast2 Burst-on-Connect feature.

To determine where the problem might be, I tried to lower the burst-size to 
32768, but doing so will not allow sources to connect to the Icecast2 server.

Anyone know what accepted values are here?

I am also going to try to learn what the SHOUTcast method of sending this 
burst is, since all players I have tested do not seem to have a problem 
with it.  I will supply this information if successful.
