The public setting here is an override mainly for on-demand relays but 
you should find a setting in the source client (as Geoff suggested). 
Besides that check the icecast error log, if YP support is disabled then 
that will be reported also if there is an error in adding the entry then 
the error will be logged (eg an invalid hostname).   While icecast may 
only add the entry after about a minute, the directory should show the 
entry fairly quickly after that.
