I would like to have fallback from /cro-region-256.ogg to 
/z-cro-region.ogg. But when I had it, it worked exactly same. So I tried 
remove it for simpler description.
On other side - why is wrong to have /cro-region-256.ogg without fallback?
I'm running lot of other streams on that icecast server and some of them 
have no fallback.

Ok, I will send you my xml file and error log in private message.
