The 'invalid password' log messages are ok, but I think I'll change the
way ices connects - at the moment, it tries to connect first without the
password, then, if it gets a "401 Unauthorized", re-tries with the password.
I think when I have some time I'll make it just always send the password,
since there's not really any reason not to.

I don't know what's causing some (but not most, or even many) people to
see spurious disconnects from the server - I certainly don't see it in
any of my local test setups. Current cvs (as of a couple of days ago)
should log (at debug level) some additional information about why
sources are being disconnected, when they are. So people having problems
should update and see if that helps.
