I'm not aware of any meta data related changes in 2.3.* -> 2.4.* that
could be relevant for your case.

In general the source client is responsible for sending the meta data.
Icecast does (in general case) not touch this information at all.

Which source client do you use? Maybe the source client has some bug (or
a "feature" you haven't expected ;).

Have a nice day!
