[Icecast] Frequent disconnects when relaying

We're running primary server (A) that has two local streams from ices2
0.2 and a secondary server (B) that relays the two streams from A and
has one local stream from ices2 in addition. Both A and B are in the
same building, though not on the same LAN.
Recently we've started having B disconnect one channel or the other
frequently from A. All listeners on that channel on B get
disconnected, and then B resumes the channel again after a while. This
always happens during our peak time around 15:00 UTC and continues
while the peak time lasts (a few hours). The setup was stable for
about a year before that, and this is a new phenomenon.
A is running Icecast 2.3.1-5
B is running Icecast 2.3.2-2 (upgraded from 2.3.1 earlier today)
Both machines are on Debian Stable.
When the disconnect happens, the messages in the primary server's (A)
[2009-02-27 18:03:28] INFO source/send_to_listener Client 662536
(nn.nn.nn.nn) has fallen too far behind, removing
[2009-02-27 18:03:28] DBUG source/source_main Client removed

[2009-02-27 18:03:28] DBUG stats/modify_node_event update node
The messages on B are:
[2009-02-27 18:03:36] INFO source/get_next_buffer End of Stream /XX
[2009-02-27 18:03:36] INFO source/source_shutdown Source "/XX" exiting

[2009-02-27 18:03:36] DBUG stats/process_source_event delete source
[Sorry, lines have wrapped].
Appreciate any help in tracing and solving this problem. Can provide
pcap files if you let me know how much data would be useful.
