If you don't want to modify sources of icecast which is non trivial I would
have recommended writing a script that fetches list of clients periodically
over icecast admin API and kills these that utilize too many connections.
If they would have keep reconnecting you should implement more advanced
solution - with total blocking on firewall or within icecast.
If you need further support, please PM me at marcin at radiokit.org
