For 100% reliability I ended up removing dir.xiph.org from my
list of YP directories.  My guess is it was taking too long to
respond to requests, which could be a problem if an icecast
server has a large number of mounts.  But it could be a
problem unique to me (I'd be curious to know if anyone else
has had trouble).

the dir.xiph.org admins might want to make sure the db is well
tuned (e.g. query caching, etc. in my.cnf) so it can perhaps
respond to touches more quickly..
