Now this is bringing back some memories.

I thought only certain BSDs had this 'feature' that background processes
still used stdout/stderr and that was a no-no.

Try this:

1) don't use the -b switch.  Tell icecast to use console_mode 3 in the
config file.

2) run icecast like so:  ./icecast > /dev/null 2> /dev/null

3) run ices hte same way.

See if that helps at all.
