First of all, I hope you meant 1.3.10.  If there's an icecast 3.1.10
floating around, there are bigger problems.

1.3.10 definately works with multiple mounts (what you called
instances) without problems.  You likely are using the wrong option to
iceplay (god knows why you are using that really outdated and inadequate

At the console in icecast, you can see what mountpoints the sources try
to grab. Type sources will also show you this.

The ports all do the exact same thing.  Each port is just a copy, their
only real use is Shoutcast compatibility since they do everything on
different ports.  We do everything on one port, but you can specify
multiple ports.  Each port is the saem as the others.

However, requestings different mountpoints on the any port should get
you the different streams.  

Here are a few other random idea:
you playlist files are either the same, or are getting mixed together? 
you aren't requesting mountpoints, but always the default mount?
