It may not be Lame. I had the exact problem with my setup of
Icecast-1.3.10 and Ices-0.0.1-beta5. I have tried winamp versions
2.71, 2.65, 2.09. I dont think that problem is in Winamp. As to where the
problem lies, i can only comment that it may actually be in Ices.
Who knows. My opinion is just that, an opinion. Alas..
