I use the command thru curl( since i set up http links in php using curl)
http://{adminname}:{adminpass}@{server}:8000/admin/killsource.xsl?mount={mountname}

and it will work, but if the source client is set up for reconnect its
possible it will be back before you can verify it gone, just look at
stream_start to see if it was changed :) THe source clients we use for
most of our streams reconnect soon as they loose connection then if
they cant it goes into a countdown to try again.

Since i use fedora I use the init.d command to reload after i updated
the icecast.xml with a new password.  Then i kick the source. Using
the above command.
