My relay has ondemand set to 0 so it's not on demand.
The source stays up and is still good and sounds good on the other 2
There are listeners connected.
It just dies.

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 winamp
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.
