[Icecast] IceCast 2.2 MP3 stream and Real Player noise

Yes - it works!
Thank you very much for your help.
Real is very picky about the intro mp3, has to be encoded just right.  I had
one that iTunes and WMP would play but real would not.  I re-encoded it with
LAME encoder and it works in all 3.

I think I still hear a little noise in the intro using Real, but not in the
stream: the stream is correct.
