Cancel red alert.
My host (VirtBiz) moved my virtual machine to another physical machine since the old one was clearly having serious problems, and now the feeds are rock-solid. (For example, the old machine would take 3-4 real seconds to register 1 second elapsed time on its real-time system clock. You can imagine the havoc that was causing with processes requiring snappy response.)
I'm puzzled that the Icecast server getting bogged down was making the encoder appear to fritz out, but as long as it's all working OK now I'm happy.
