[Icecast] Use web admin to re-start source?

Thank you. In this case, the source client is the fallback mount, which
is an mp3 file.
I think I found my issue.
The code in icecast.xml looks like this:
<stream-name>KPOV private remote stream</stream-name>
When the Icecast source client mount "/stream" is powered off or
disconnected, the listen client hears the fallback-mount, which is the
file fallback.mp3 . This is expected behavior.
If I use the "Kill Source" button on the web admin page at
/admin/listmounts.xsl to kill the fallback, the listen client stops
playing and the listmounts.xsl page shows
Message: Source Removed
Return Code: 1
This also seems like expected behavior.
If I reconnect the listen client, I hear the fallback.mp3 file again.
But if I refresh the listmounts.xsl page (it is still showing the
"Source Removed" message and Return Code), it kills the stream again. So
refreshing that page seems to re-issue the "Kill Source" command. This
is unexpected behavior.
But no big deal: if I first navigate away from listmounts.xsl then
return (instead of refreshing it) it shows the fallback playing normally.
A RFE: would it be possible for the current stream bitrates to be
displayed on stats.xsl ?
