I don't know why there's lots of problems lately. I assume some small
libc implementation changed that icecast must have depended on. I ran
icecast on 4 boxes, running 6 server per box, with a
straight-out-of-the-box compile for almost a year. We didn't have any
It's true that sock.c did have a bug in it. But several of the proposed
patches were _wrong_. The one in CVS should be correct.
Saying that icecast is only appropriate for testing is wrong. Many
people use it on a daily basis for production work.
It looks like there's a legitimate hard-to-find bug in there somewhere,
but on the bright side, icecast 2 seems to have _none_ of these
problems. We might try all reporing our glibc versions, OS versions and
vendors, and system load while broadcasting to see if there are any
