[icecast] "Can't get client address"

This is my first post here. I can usually just lurk and figure stuff out, 
but this time I'm really stumped.

I'm running Icecast version  with IceS version as the source. I had finally 
gotten everything stablized, and the server was running smoothly.

But the past couple of days the server has been acting really flakey. I've 
got a keepalive script which brings it back up, but the source and the 
server itself have crashed more in the last two days than in the last two 
months combined.

I'm seeing a load of these over and over in the messages log in /var/log:

"icecast: warning: can't get client address: Connection reset by peer"

Also the number of errors reported per user in stats.log is way higher now 
for everyone connected. It used to just sit at zero for everyone.

Anyone have any ideas what is going on here? Am I being SYN-flooded or 

This is really frustrating me, and I'm sure my listeners are sick of the 
yo-yo effect (i.e., up--down--up-down).

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
