[Icecast] URL authentication

The php file is not password protected in itself, so authentication  
of the authentication page shouldn't be a problem.

I'm using a Mac OS 10.4.7 server, running LightTPD. Its logs do not  
report icecast connecting to it at all. What seems to be happening is  
that icecast *thinks* it is connecting when it is in fact not, and  
then it thinks that the user is authenticated. Which means that  
authentication isn't performed at all.
