The latest libshout has my changes to correctly enable Theora
timing as well as providing timing for OGG Speex.  I unfortunately
am really busy right now so can't investigate shout-python.
btw. the type is already internally OGG with the VORBIS type
deprecated but supported.  My streams appear to be working
fine so if you could clarify the conditions that hangs
occur under, what OS are you using, version of python,
what exactly is being streamed (mp3, Vorbis, Theora/Vorbis),
that might narrow the search down.
