i have yp problems with 2.2-kh and 2.2.0 as well.
i get the following in error.log:

[2005-04-15  10:12:18] EROR yp/send_to_yp YP add on 
http://lac2005.zkm.de/cgi-bin/yp_cgi failed: Genre blank

i've also seen the same msg with "Server name blank".

i'm sure they are definitely not blank, since i define both explicitly:

         <stream-name>YOUR RELAY HOSTNAME HERE - LAC2005 A/V Lecture 
         <stream-description>500 kbit/s Ogg Theora 
         <stream-genre>Technical Presentation</stream-genre>

karl h. mentioned on irc he had an idea what the problem might be, and i 
see there is an svn commit in his branch:
[04:10:00] <CIA-5> karl * r9139 /icecast/branches/kh/icecast/src/ (9 files):
[04:10:00] <CIA-5> Various fixes and cleanups. Theora keyframes could 
have a refcount uncleared
[04:10:00] <CIA-5> on chained streams leading to large memory use by the 
queue. YP add now deals
[04:10:00] <CIA-5> with querying the stats allowing for a delay when 
collecting the details.
[04:10:00] <CIA-5> small leaks elsewhere plugged.

i'll try this version now.
