you know, you could actually tell me about any issues that crop up,
having a report like this under the subject of icecast1 documentation is
easily missed.

on-demand relays can fail with those cases, if the source of the relay
is not available.  Again specifics will help, I've had little in the way
of reports of problems.

not stopping is a new one, if you have a test case for this then fine. I
had removed the pending queue recently, and it looks like the count was
off by 1. Fixed in svn now, I don't see the count not increasing and
decreasing at all though, what is the case you're using.

again, do let me know. might save you a lot of work.
