This has been reported before, however it's has ALWAYS been due to 
caching of the data in the media player.  Winamp, for instance, 
caches your username and password in the request, so usually you just 
have to enter the user/pass once and from that time forward it may 
*seem* that you are bypassing the user/pass check, however icecast 
still validates it.  Try using something like "wget" (which doesn't 
cache user/passwords for http authenticated streams)
