[icecast] Ices dies

Hi !

Im using ices to send streams through icecast. But there is a problem.
Ices dies and stops sending data after various hours of playing. Since
ices is feeded with songs through a perlscript the songs should never
stop coming.
My guess is that it dies when no listeners are connected. But I cant see
why, and I dont like pushing play all the time. =)

This is what my icecast.log says at the end.
[01/Oct/2001:18:04:23] [113:Source Thread] Lost connection to source on
mount /ices, waiting 30 seconds for timeout
[01/Oct/2001:18:04:53] [113:Source Thread] Kicking source 109
[] [Client timeout exceeded, removing source] [encoder],
connected for 3 hours, 58 minutes and 17 seconds, 871954 bytes
transfered. 0 sources connected
[01/Oct/2001:18:04:53] [113:Source Thread] Kicking all 1 clients for

[] [Stream ended] [listener], connected for 1 hours, 52 minutes
and 1 seconds, 122667008 bytes transfered. 0 clients connected

To start everything up I created a small script.

[root at localhost icecast]# more play.sh 
echo "Starting stream....\n";
bin/icecast -c etc/icecast.conf -b
bin/ices -S perl -n ComuniCadio -P icecom -B

When I run this I get this...

[root at localhost icecast]# ./play.sh 
Starting stream....\n
[02/Oct/2001:08:36:46] No configfile found, using defaults.

./play.sh: line 3: 16567 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) bin/ices

The strange thing is the seg fault on line 3. Anyway everything starts
just fine, so I dont get the error message. But it might have something
to with the "dieing".

Any help, hints would be appreciated...
