[icecast] Simple directory question

I've been running an icecast server for about a year, and never really had
the chance to test it out on the other side of our Internet link. We've
had a lot of people trying us out, but very short connect times in the
whole. I finally got a cable modem at home, tried having a listen, and
found the stream to be very stuttery.
So, first things first, I went and grabbed the latest icecast source,
compiled and installed on my linux box. I then set about twiddling the
config file, and finally got some sense.
However, we've disappeared from yp.icecast.org as far as I can tell.
Looking in the logfile, I see the following:-
[1:Calendar Thread] directory_touch_xa([yp.icecast.org:80])
completed...server id = 69
which seems to suggest that all is well. But it ain't, 'cos we're not listed!
Anyone had something similar?? I also get a server id of -1 from
yp.shoutcast.com, which I assume is their polite way of saying 'please take
your business elsewhere' :-)
Other info: I'm using streamcast (irdp kept on hanging up on me - 96% CPU
usage, no stream coming out) and I've turned metadata off 'cos it makes the
stream stutter and warble.
Oh, and if anyone wants a listen, the stream's at
