source stream disconnecting

I spent hours last night searching through posts, but didn't come up with a solution to my problem.

I'm running a live stream from WinAmp soundcard line input to my Linux server running D.N.A.S. After several hours, the source stream seems to be disconnecting.

When this happens there is no entry in the log and the status still shows [active]. It will also not allow the DSP to reconnect... it keeps retrying every 30 seconds. When clients log in, they get a looped stream about 34 seconds long and then are disconnected.

I would normally assume some connection issue is breaking the source stream connection, but why is the D.N.A.S. getting 'locked up' like that?

Here is a look at the log from last night:

It looks like the problem happened around 3:36 am.

I double-checked these config settings:
; AutoDumpUsers controls whether listeners are disconnected if the source
; stream disconnects. The default is 0.

; AutoDumpSourceTime specifies how long, in seconds, the source stream is
; allowed to be idle before the server disconnects it. 0 will let the source
; stream idle indefinately before disconnecting. The default is 30.

The stream is at

If anyone can offer some advise, it would be greatly appreciated.
