Can you check against the latest, there were a couple of minor error
conditions cleaned up


and just to verify you're using libshout kh20, should be identified in
the log at the beginning ? This sounds like more like a libshout issue
specifically the state setting.  You should see the "closed shout
connection" message in your logs before the Time we started message?

Is there anything odd going on after 24 hours BTW, the shout output is
not time limited, so the only cases for dropping the connection is if
icecast shuts down or becomes inaccessible or ices shuts down.
