Interesting... SHOUTcast Server Version 1.9.2/Linux doesn't want to list tracks in its song history unless they're more than a couple of minutes long. I'm guessing this is a feature to keep ads and station ID tags from appearing, but it's a bit of a problem when you're actually broadcasting short songs. I don't see an obvious way to change this in the config files, and it shouldn't really be a user-settable option anyway. Not a big deal in practical terms, but it does point out the dangers (or RISKS) of making assumptions about what your users want and not documenting those well.
