I really recommend using the strace tool to verify the script is successfully

I suspect that a problem is in your script. E.g. it does not work without
a terminal or with /dev/null connected to standard input and output. Icecast
changes file descriptors for the executed commands.

Does you script work when executed from a shell like this?

    /home/my_username/bin/email_onconnect.sh </dev/null >/dev/null 2>/dev/null

While Icecast developers have a good relationship with Debian, I would recommend
you to contact vendor of the repository in question. Icecast developers cannot
be responsible for packaging Icecast by someone else.
