Fyi Iv been able to replicate this...sometimes:

I have 2 servers (a master and a relay)
I have a connection to the relay (relay is ondemand/master setup) in
The source is connected to the master (both on same machine so connects
to /mp3 from
If the source drops, the master drops, the relay then drops, when winamp
tries to connect to the relay it gets a 404 a couple of times
After a few connects the relay server will just dissapear with any
errors in the log!

I also had this error on a linux trial relay (it came up a segmentation

Fred how is your icecast setup? Its it like mines? Do you use ondemeand
relay? Does it die when your trying to connect to your relay and there
isnt a source?

That makes me suspicious to start with, the same app with the same
config and the same server keeps failing. Obviously there are other
factors that can get involved like the directory server and of course
listeners but make sure there is nothing weird hardware-wise, eg run a
hard memory test.

the generated fault report is about as clear as mud so it needs more
investigation, whether the fault address will indicate the real fault is
to be checked.
