[Icecast] Relaying with Icecast - stand-by or active all the time?

The relaying-configuration seems to be straight-forward, unfortunately it
does not work. That's my configuration:

<relays-on-demand>1</relays-on-demand>

<relay>
<server>http://mp3stream7.apasf.apa.at</server>
<port>8000</port>
<mount>/</mount>
<local-mount>/oe3.mp3</local-mount>
<on-demand>1</on-demand>

<relay-shoutcast-metadata>0</relay-shoutcast-metadata>
</relay>

And that's what the error log says:

[2013-02-20 17:56:19] INFO connection/get_ssl_certificate No SSL capability
[2013-02-20 17:56:20] DBUG slave/_slave_thread checking master stream list

When I'm doing a plain, simple

wget http://mp3stream7.apasf.apa.at

the stream is downloaded properly. Any Ideas what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks!
