[Icecast] Icecast 2.4.0 max-listener-duration

I'm using Windows so don't have access to xmllint but web browsers can pass the XML file just fine.

Remove the 3 lines and everything works correctly.  I can't see any errors in the 2 lines, so I guess it's a KH problem.

Note that my answer is only valid for the official releases. I can not make any statement for fork by third parties.

If Icecast 2.4.x/2.5.x returns parser errors it's likely due to invalid XML. You can check that with xmllint(1):
$ xmllint /path/to/icecast.xml

It will report any XML level errors.
