Only reading the ID3 tag requires seeking for mp3, and that is exactly
the case that your patch seems likely to break.
Though anyway this would better be reworked to actually try seeking
(preferably in a way that does not cause more performance problems)
since some servers seem to send Accept-Range but actually fail to seek.
