That error sounds like it could either be an issue relating to which 
user is starting the Icecast daemon (f.e. typically only root can listen 
on ports < 1024), or there'salready a service running on the requested 
port (which you seem to have verified it's not).

What are these multiple listening sockets you've got going btw? Sounds 
related. Post the part of the config for this if you're able.
