I use the command thru curl( since i set up http links in php using curl)
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.
