hi karl,

I'm aware that u are the one who should now better than me ;), but I'm
pretty sure that I have needed these patch to make my icecast 2.2.0 work
with an internet explorer / flash-client... what I can't say is if it really
needed all those 4 lines, maybe first 3 lines are not necessary...

(or maybe I'm mixing up something, but I'm really pretty sure)

greets,
mike
