[Icecast] Switch back to mount after fallback

Hi,

It's not necessary to have a <mount> section for your fallback mount, unless 
you need other mount-specific stuff like different passwords, etc.

Nevertheless, it should work as you desire.  Is there anything in your error 
log when you reconnect your main stream that might explain why the listeners 
aren't being moved?

Not working. But what is wrong? I've added the second mount to
icecast.xml and tested whether it switch back to the original mount
point. The mount part of icecast.xml:

    <mount>
        <mount-name>/gast.ogg</mount-name>
        <fallback-mount>/offline.ogg</fallback-mount>
        <fallback-override>1</fallback-override>
    </mount>
    <mount>
        <mount-name>/offline.ogg</mount-name>
    </mount>

Where gast.ogg is the main stream. When gast.ogg comes back it should
switch back from offline.ogg to gast.ogg.
