I got this mail today:

Dear Friend, 

Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. I
am Mr. Michael Smith, I work with the Absa Bank SA as an account officer in
the Treasury/Credit Control Unit. I came to know you in private search for a
reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction, which
involve the transfer of a huge sum of money into a foriegn account requiring
maximum confidence.

This message was signed by 'Michael Smith', and sent from
ml_smith190 at hotmail.com. I believe this message to be part of a scam to
cheat people out of their money.

I suggest you scan your computers for virusses and malware.

I believe this is a bug in the shoutcast NSV source client.

There was a workaround for it in earlier versions which got lost in the 2.3
development cycle; it's been reinstated since.

You can expect to see this in a 2.3.1 release sometime soon. In the
meantime, you could build the current SVN version.
