The stream in ogg is never present or is not present only when the mp3
stream is down ?.
Are you using Icecast2 ? ... In http://www.radiogalere.org:8080 I can
not see mountpoints :(

I have not made ​​many tests on "burst" and I've left burst values that
icecast.xml has by default:
http://www.fmreta.com.ar (click to "ESCUCHAR!" at the top right)

I have seen many stations with burst 64k instead of 65k.
What values ​​do you use ?.
