[Icecast] <on-connect> / <on-disconnect> not working

Icecast server 2.4.0 running on Linux.

I have a couple of shell scripts that send emails on connect and on 
disconnect. From the command line they work, but when called from 
icecast they do not.

Here is the mount section of my icecast.xml:

<mount type="normal">

After putting the new <on-connect> and <on-disconnect> entries into 
icecast.xml I reloaded the config with /etc/init.d/icecast2 reload and 
there was no error written to /var/log/icecast2/error.log

<on-connect> calls /home/my_username/bin/email_onconnect.sh which works 
from the command line. Likewise, <on-disconnect> calls a similar script 
which also works from the command line. I've tested them.

The permissions for the two scripts:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 my_username my_username 352 Jul 14 07:49 email_onconnect.sh
-rwxr-xr-x 1 my_username my_username 375 Jul 14 07:49 email_ondisconnect.sh

I'd like to get these functions working . . . ideas?

Thank you!
