[icecast] advanced relaying questions

Hey there listmembers!

Two realying questions :

1) Have anyone out there tested how many relays a single icecast
   1.3.10 server can serv? Ive been doing tests with the amount of
   sourcestreams a icecastserver can handle but not realys? 

2) Bug in icecast 1.3.10 adding more than one realy in the alias list
   in icecast.conf will make icecast realying the first source in
   aliaslist correctly the rest is wrong because icecast somehow
   replace the source with its own localadresse? Let me give an
   example :

Icecastserverurl : http://icecastserver.domain.com:8000

Aliasentry in icecast.conf :

alias mountpoint/low  http://source.domain.com:8000/low

If the above aliasentry is the first everything will work correctly
but if its the second or more the icecast server will replace the
sourceadresse in the aliasentry with its own locale adresse like this

alias mountpoint/low  http://icecastserver.domain.com:8000/low

Does anyone have a clue why this happens?

Venlig hilsen/Kind regards
