Thanks Jeff,

the /etc/icecast2 is owned by root and group root

I am not sure what you mean about the absolute path to icecast.xml.  In 
which file?  the /etc/init.d/icecast2 file?

This is what is there:

# Defaults
CONFIGFILE="/etc/icecast2/icecast.xml"
CONFIGDEFAULTFILE="/etc/default/icecast2"
USERID=icecast2
GROUPID=icecast
ENABLE="false"

could it be that it says USERID and GROUPID are icecast2 and icecast 
respectively?
