Can you please run Icecast under Valgrind?
I'm personally using:
valgrind -v --time-stamp=yes --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes
icecast -c /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml

With our experiments so far we were not able to see such massive leaks.
It would also help to know more about your setup.
Which distro is this on? Which version of it?
Built from source? OBS package?

By the looks of it each stream leaks something in your case.
How long are the songs you have in the playlists (Wondering how often it
gets metadata updates).

Really appreciate your help, as we want to make a good 2.4 release soon.
