Why don't we start by trying to track down the bug which is the root of
the problem? :)

I don't really see how this is possible though.  The clients are able to
'get behind' but at a certain point if they are really disconnected,
they can't receive any data (even if they never tell us they are
disconnected, say if the power cord got ripped out of the wayy), so when
a client got behind past the threshhold (this was 10-15 'blocks' iirc)
then icecast automatically removed them, since they weren't fast enough
to keep up.

This sounds like a failure in the fallback logic somewhere.  Do you have
fallback turned on?
