  Hello,

I found curious thing in fallback function.

I send 2 streams from machine "A" to icecast server:
   "cro-region-256.ogg"   (224 kb/s stream)
   "cro-region.ogg"       (128 kb/s stream)

and 1 backup stream from machine "B" to same icecast server:
   "z-cro-region.ogg"       (128 kb/s stream)

I'm using following definition in my icecast.xml file:
     <mount>
             <mount-name>/cro-region.ogg</mount-name>
             <fallback-mount>/z-cro-region.ogg</fallback-mount>
             <fallback-override>1</fallback-override>
     </mount>

When I'm listening stream "/cro-region.ogg" and I stop both streams 
"cro-region-256.ogg" and "cro-region.ogg", my client (xmms) is moved to 
"/z-cro-region.ogg" stream greatly.
But when I start both streams "cro-region-256.ogg" and "cro-region.ogg" 
again, my client is moved to "/cro-region-256.ogg" instead of 
"/cro-region.ogg".

Is it ok?
