I think (and I haven't tested it recently, but this is how I designed
it) the /test.m3u request serving a playlist should only happen in
/test is a currently-existing mountpoint. If it isn't, the code will
continue on - and should serve the stream. It probably confuses winamp
and other buggy clients, though.
