[Icecast] Using Icecast over IPv6

I realise this might be a Debian-specific question.

I've got access to two hosts which have IPv6 connectivity, both of which 
are running Icecast 2.3.2.  One is still running Debian Lenny and can be 
reached via IPv6 just fine, but the other is running Debian Squeeze and 
cannot.  In addition, my local server which does not have IPv6 conectivity 
to the Internet but which can be reached at localhost via ::1 and which 
also runs Debian Squeeze cannot either.

To test, I used:
telnet <IPv6address> 8000

The Squeeze boxes returned a "Connection Refused" error but the Lenny 
machine answered the call.

As far as I can see, there's no difference in the way these servers are 
configured.  I configured all three based on the shipped config file. 
There's nothing in the Debian-specific changelog which indicates a change 
in this regard.  And the Icecast2 documentation says that IPv6 should just 
work if no bind atributes are specified.

Any thoughts?
