[icecast] Keeping icecast from kicking clients

I'm trying to setup Icecast so that clients can stay connected
indefinately.  Basically sources will connect on occasion, but may
disconnect until they get instructions to connect again (think about a
jukebox that does not play music until something is selected.  Now add in
distrubuted, thin clients and you realize why this is an important
feature).

According to the icecast authors, it is possible to do this.  However, I
have yet to make it or see it work.  Clients are immediately kicked by
Icecast (1.3.10) and get a 404 not found.  I saw this same response in
1.3.7.

Anyway, here are the iterations of icecast.conf files that I've
tried:
