Downloading and displaying album cover is broken on recent version of Radiotray.

To get back the feature apply this patch to AudioPlayerGStreamer.py:

            #if there is no song information, there's no point in triggering song change event

BTW: To send album cover with icecast + ezstream + MP3 simply include a line in ezstream's config XML:

<metadata_format>@a@ - @t@';StreamUrl='http://your-domain/url/of/album/cover.jpg</metadata_format>

/url/of/album/cover.jpg could be a dynamic symbolic link, so that it is possible to send different covers for each song.
