actually, it was a bug when listing in multiple directories only. It was 
caused by accidentally resetting the "last touch time" for all directory 
entries when it should have done it only for one directory entry.  This was 
causing the "I need to touch now" logic to not get triggered.  I just 
committed a patch to icecast that fixes this problem.  So, please update 
your code otherwise you will have troubles updating to more than one 
directory reliably.

I have also updated http://www.oddsock.org/tools/icecast2 with the latest 
CVS code as well....
