For some reason IceChat closes after a while without asking whether I would like to close IceChat.
There is no error line in the error.txt either.
It has happened several times while I was idling, maybe this can help, it has not yet occured while I was chatting...

Hmm, fun.
If it happens a lot, open the debug log, and then you can see if anything specific is happening when it does shut down, in case some event is firing that causes it to go boom, by looking at the debug log in the Logs folder after it has closed.
I have had IceChat idle for days now w/o any problems, so I am guessing something specific is causing it to explode.

Its fun teaching you guys how to debug problems  :)

This problem seems to be happening to me now as well.
So I am doing some testing/work on seeing what causes it to blow, as it does it not at any specific event, but more when IceChat regains focus from another application OR when the mouse is moving over IceChat.

I got some rough ideas anyways, so I hope to have this problem fixed soon.

Well, I am more or less happy to hear that you have experienced this problem, too :D
It has not occurred again here, just wanted to report that :D
