    Well Silly me. I was at least thinking that it was something that actually
    made sense. This is a new bug - oh I meant feature - introduced by
    Microsoft in a security patch to IE5 and with IE6 when used with Windows
    MediaPlayer 7.x. When either gets an inline m3u file, they pass the URL and
    not the data over to mediaplayer. That means the URL gets requested twice -
    once by the browser and once again by WMM - which doesn't understand this
    new fangled stuff like headers and m3u data stream. Naturally this only
    happens with Microsoft and WMM, not with any other audio agent or any other
    browser combination.

    I can't find this documented anywhere. I couldn't believe what the behavior
    and diagnostics in my code was telling me until I actually saw it with a
    packet sniffer.

    I can't think of enough nasty and insulting things to say about this.
