problems with users disconnecting

Hello there. I'm an admin of a radio called PlanetSide-Radio, and we are experiencing some heavy shoutcast issues.
Our setup is one main 80-user shoutcast server, wich are the first server in our listen.pls file.
The second server connects to the main server as a relayer.
Both servers are running SHOUTcast Distrubuted Network Audio Server/FreeBSD v1.9.4

It looks like both our shoutcasts servers are suddenly just disconnecting lots of listeners, without any errors in the logs.

I cant find anything in the logfiles that would say why, and I cant find any configuration entry that provides more debug'ed loglevel.

This is what basically happends:
(example output from the backup server that connects to the main server)

It goes on like this forever. People connect and disconnect all the time, suddenly a burst of disconnects etc.

The server is not losing any packets, I've tested that. And I'm watching the server logs via a SSH window when it happends, so it cant be the connection to the internet.

Any ideas?
