[Icecast-dev] libshout crashing during pause

Hello. For various reasons I am writing my own source client.
Most things seem to be working well. Connections work. shout_send() and
shout_sync() seem to behave as expected.
However, I find that if more than about 10-20 seconds passes between
shout_send() calls then libshout crashes (takes my client down) during a
Are there any rules about how often shout_send() should be called? (Yes,
I know about shout_sync.)
How can I keep the library from crashing if long stretches of time pass
with no input to the server?
Background: What I want to do is periodically stream a file (or
several) to icecast, but with stretches of time in between with nothing
playing. I want the mount-point active so that listeners can connect
(even if nothing is currently playing). Then whenever my client sends
another stream to icecast, the various listeners would just hear it.
I don't want to use shout_close() and then shout_open() again after the
long empty stretches, because then the listeners would have to reopen
the stream from the server.
PS: Sorry if there is a separate libshout list. Please let me know if
this is the wrong place.
