[Icecast] Relays Ending With "Disconnecting source due to socket timeout"

I use Icecast 2.4.0 on Windows 8.1. I have a config file which sets up 
roughly a dozen relays to connect on demand.

My typical use is to connect to 1-4 of the streams simultaneously. All 
connections are either via WinAmp to or via other clients on 
my LAN. My intent is to leave the connections active for up to 72 hours.

When I connect through my relays, eventually the connections are dropped 
with "Disconnecting source due to socket timeout" errors. Connecting to 
the sources directly allows me to stream as long as I like. I presume my 
problem to be me misunderstanding one or more settings, and any 
tinkering I've done chasing the problem has centered on the limits 
section. I've tried modifying queue-size, client-timeout, 
header-timeout, source-timeout, burst-on-connect, and burst-size to no 
avail. My config file is below. The config file has multiple relay 
sections which follow the example here.


     <!-- set the mountpoint for a shoutcast source to use, the default 
if not
          specified is /stream but you can change it here if an 
alternative is
          wanted or an extension is required


         <!-- <shoutcast-mount>/stream</shoutcast-mount> -->


     <!-- StationNameGoesHere Relay -->

Everything past the relays section is unaltered from the default. Thanks 
in advance for any thoughts.
