[PD] mp3cast~ again

I'm trying to use mp3cast~ with Icecast 1.
Initially I had a patch where the settings messages ('passwd', 'mountpoint',
etc.) for the mp3cast~ were sent when the patch was loaded and the 'connect'
and 'disconnect' messages were sent in response to other events. In this
setup I got all the expected messages from PD but I couldn't connect to the
mp3 streams, my clients just said that Icecast was returning a 404 error.
I wondered whether perhaps it might help if I sent all the settings messages
every time I sent 'connect' so I altered my patch. Now, it tells me that I'm
sending a "Bad Password".
I tried altering the password in the icecast.conf file (which is very
confusing and difficult on Debian) but it still doesn't like it. I wanted to
tell makepasswd what password I wanted (by default it just makes up random
passwords!) so I did this:
$ echo apassword | makepasswd --verbose --crypt --clearfrom=-
which seemed to work. I copied the encrypted version into my icecast.conf
file. I guess thats right?
In PD, can you send send messages in any particular order? If so, would it
matter what order I sent the 'connect' and 'passwd' messages to mp3cast~?
On the other hand, of course, that's probably not the problem anyway. Its more
likely that my initial approach is best, I just need to find out why Icecast
isn't serving up the mp3 streams...
