Makes sense. If the Icecast log would also log the IP address it would 
be easier to say if this is our own player or someone elses.

Of course I could just ignore it, but it's so prominent in the error log 
that it is sort of irritating.

It might also be that some service we use assume we're using ShoutCast 
and want to extract "now playing" title and artist information. So maybe 
it would even make "sense" to provide the 7.html file in the expected
