Genuis karl! The change sorted it.
Now when the source disconnects, the winamp stream just stopped (and
went onto the next stream in the playlist in my case)

Cheers for your help,

could you build a compiled windows version of icecast with this fix (and
also the relay on demand default setting as enabled, also fixed by karl)
Whenever you have a spare moment, it would make me very very happy! Im
still trying to build my own in VS.net 2003 but getting nowhere ;-)

Cheers guys!

yeah, that's the stuff we want.

interesting, the actual segv reason is easy enough to resolve, I'm just
wondering what the state of the listener is in at the time. It will be
hard to tell from the core, as some changes to the client have been made
by the time the core occurs.

anyway, try the following

in source.c line 359 change

                if (source->client->con == NULL)
                    client->intro_offset = -1; to
                if (source->client && source->client->con == NULL)
                    client->intro_offset = -1;

make debug install

re-run test, let me know just in case it's not the only problem your
