Radio stream fails with message "string too long"

The stream cited in the error message below used to play fine in Foobar but now produces the message below;  same URL still decodes/plays fine in AIMP, XMPlay, and MusicBee:

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (string too long):
"http://radio.canstream.co.uk:8013/live.mp3"

Any ideas what the issue is?  Using Foobar 1.4 with Windows 7 SP1.

Bug acknowledged and fixed for the next update, thanks for reporting.

The station still shows a nonsensical title though, but it seems to be a problem on their end.

Thank you Peter I appreciate it!  If I may just take this opportunity to ask about another radio-related matter, was the decision to remove the option for a user-adjustable network buffer setting for streams due to some conflict with other functionality?  That option was a big assist when dealing with marginal streams/network conditions.

Buffering settings will be back in 1.4.1 as well.
