This shows that either a) Icecast is incorrectly sending the wrong metadata,
or b) Icecast is never receiving the correct metadata, due (presumably) to
some bug in your source client.

I think b) is much more likely, since nobody before you has ever said
anything
to suggest that icecast loses track of metadata updates.

Listening to the stream doesn't help - I'd have to (at least) see full
network
dumps of the tcp stream between the source client (fb2k?) and icecast2. That
would (eventually) show whether the source is sending the correct data or
not.

If you can collect such a network dump, could you send it to me off-list
(it's
likely to be big)? A section covering at least one metadata change would be
required.
