I had issues with passwords and various things - it turned out that
crypt support was enabled, so it thought that "hackme" was the result of
encrypting some string.  So try doing "mkpasswd hackme" and putting that
in your icecast config (but keep it as hackme in your ices config).

I could be completely wrong... I usually am.
