[Icecast] ices 0.4 can't find playlists...

Hello,

I've compiled and successfully run icecast2 with ices on a single 
stream. But I'm running into problems running multiple streams from 
ices to icecast...

I used the <playlist>...</playlist> syntax to run a single stream, but 
the docs on icecast.org seem to suggest using the <input>...</input> 
syntax instead. I've actually tried it both ways, with similar results: 
ices reports "Could not find a valid playlist file." and exits.

Here's both versions of my config...both of these are inside the 
<Stream>...</Stream> tags, and I've verified that the paths to the 
playlist.txt files are valid. If I use the same <Playlist> tags at the 
top of the file (outside the <stream> tags) and only configure one 
stream, it works. Can someone let me know what I'm going wrong?

Thanks,

-Chris

<input> syntax:
--------------------

<input>
       <module>playlist</module>
       <param name="type">basic</param>
       <param name="file">/opt/rekoil/mp3lib/elektro/playlist.txt</param>
       <param name="random">1</param>
       <param name="once">0</param>
</input>

<Playlist> syntax:

     <Playlist>
       <File>/opt/rekoil/mp3lib/elektro/playlist.txt</File>
       <Randomize>1</Randomize>
       <Type>builtin</Type>
       <Module>ices</Module>
     </Playlist>
