Argh! I've reproduced the problem, carefully created the log files,
anonymized them and was just going to post them when it hit me after
I've read the first line of the copy&paste of the log, which was:
[2005-09-20 20:52:50] INFO main/main Icecast 2.2-kh9 server started
I have deployed version 2.2-kh9 again, instead of the newly built rc3!
(The build machine and the deployment machine are different)
So I slap myself on the head, installed the rc3 and _everything_ works
Sorry for bothering and thanks for the help !
