Since I don't actually have simplecast (or a system it could run on), I can't 
directly test this. However, it's a problem that has been reported before, 
and it's not an icecast bug.

simplecast is expecting a response in a particular format - and icecast has 
never sent the stats response in that precise format. That's my guess, 
anyway... If anyone could send me a network trace showing the statistics 
request (from simplecast) and response (from icecast), I could check this.
