Hi All--

I'm trying to get icecast working with ices, but I'm having a problem with
the PQueue module.  I'm including my ices.connf file and verbose output when
running in non-daemon mode below.  I'm running on Fedora Core 1, and have
all packages updated (via yum).

I'd greatly appreciate any insights.
