Your views are well respected by me. 

Looking in retrospect, yes it was my error, since
i was using http://quasi.ksl.com/icecast/ to try
to configure icecast2. 

It seems to me now that the problem was shout
not being designed to work with icecast2. Because
if the passwd string was the same (in the icecast2 and shout conf)
i think it would have not matter if it was encrypted or not.

Thanks to Mike i now know that "shout isn't intended for icecast2 (and 
doesn't work correctly even with 1.x, anyway)." I did not see that 
on the how-to (maybe im blind).

Thanks for your kind words of wisdom.
