[Icecast] Problem? On-demand relay & max listeners redirect

I think this might be a problem:

Say I have a master stream called /aac with 20 max listeners

I also have a on-demand relay with (master-redirect) enabled.

Now the plan is, when the master stream is full it would redirect to the
slave stream (a 302), but the slave stream cannot connect to the master
as its currently full.

So somehow the icecast server has to allow the relay stream to connect
(either by reserving a set amount of connections for relays, or by
kicking off a current listener on that stream to allow the relay to...

Is this a current problem or have I configured something wrong?
