Bingo! Following your suggestion, I checked my Icecast error log (duh)
EROR yp/send_to_yp YP add on http://dir.xiph.org/cgi-bin/yp-cgi failed:
Add refused. Reason: Illegal listen_url. Incorrect <hostname>.
After trying all sorts of different combinations and permutations of my
URL (with and without the port, with and without the tailing slash) in
the <webhost> entry of my icecast.xml, I finally stumbled on using the
domain name only (without the http://).
That did the trick!
Thanks for the help, Karl (and Jiri and Jeff and Bryan)!
