Just an update... I still haven't gotten around to troubleshooting why 
Icecast on my Windows 7 system doesn't support more than one listener, 
that's a mini project.

I did install the shoutcast server on my Windows 7 system and it seems 
to have no trouble supporting more than one listener.

I'll report back if I learn anything new about IceCast.

Cheers, Eric
