Check how it exits, ie do you get a core file (ulimit -c), if so build
icecast with debug, retest then send us the backtrace from the core.

you should see plenty of messages in the log file, if not then you
really need to determine why logging is not working.

explain how icecast is being used, are relays involved, are mp3 streams
involved etc.  The references to xslt above would indicate some access
to the web interface of icecast.  Those error message are from libxslt
so that may indicate an .xsl file that has been changed, if so then make
sure it's valid.
