30 seconds is a large outage, don't be surprised if streamtranscoder
will drop/block connection on full socket.

The only lag that is added by icecast is the burst buffer, nothing else
is added to that.  You're better off falling back then bringing
listeners back after resuming.  The development code can fallback to
file which may be helpful to you as well.
