If I understand it correctly, if you have both sources connected, you won't 
be able to have any listeners.

Assuming you want to use Shoutcast compatibility mode, you didn't define a 
second port on 8001 and set to shoutcast-compat.

The following comes from the sample shoutcast config file:

     <!-- You MUST define 2 ports, port and port +1 -->
         <!-- Configure the shoutcast DSP with *this* port
              the shoutcast DSP actually will connect the
              encoder to this port + 1 -->
         <!-- This port *must* be one larger than the one defined
              above and defined as 'shoutcast-compat' -->

Can't Liveice do native Icecast2 streaming?  At any rate, this is going to 
fail because it's trying to conect to 8000 which is not set up as shoutcast

This doesn't match your config above either.

Your stream will show up on /stream, not on / .  If you want it to show up 
on / you'll have to set / as your shoutcast-mount, not /stream, or define 
an alias.

This only shows us Icecast's various processes shutting down, so has no 
useful information.

Ok, there's a number of things, hope this is helpful.
