this patch has not been integrated in Debian yet, hence the Icecast2
package still segfaults after filling up all the memory with its leak.
as this is a critical bug, while it seems that the current Debian
mantainer for the icecast2 package has abandoned its duty, i'm kindly
asking the attention of debian developers included in this mail, will
provide them with more details in private.
