Sure!  My script (with the icecast password changed) is attached.

Icecast will buffer according to what it needs to burst into a new
connection IIRC. Clients will also have some buffer.  So, there's some
unavoidable lag.  However, the lag should only ge a few seconds, not a
minute, and it would only grow steadily if the client is doing
something wrong...
