[Icecast] restarting streamtranscoder w/ out killing listeners

I'm running streamtranscoder on my icecast server. Unfortunately,
after 5-15 minutes of transcoding, it sometimes produces jumpy/skippy
audio or drops the stream altogether. What I'd like to do is restart
streamtranscoder every 5 minutes. However, when I kill
streamtranscoder and bring it back, all listeners on the stream get
killed. How can I prevent this? In other words, how can I get
icecast to keep publishing the mount point when streamtranscoder is
killed and started again?
Also, are there any stable alternatives to streamtranscoder?
