If something doesn't work when chroot is in effect and ok when not then
it's more than likely to be a chroot environment problem.  Icecast will
use system services to perform operations.

I would guess for YP, the ability to make a connection to another server
is causing the problem, which entails the DNS lookup. I suspect you do
not have the /etc files setup correctly in the chroot jail.
