I did apply a fix for this type of error a few weeks ago, so this
depends on when exactly you got the svn code. The messages "server
already exists" are down to icecast YP entries not being removed, that
should be fixed already.

The above (null) message also requires a minor fix for error message
display. It's null as the YP operation failed but didn't actually send
an error message, however we do want something to be logged in such
cases so that action can be taken.

You should be able to comment out the YP section for dir.xiph.org and
send the HUP signal, adding it back in when the service comes back
