This will typically happen when the input file has a longish section of 
digital silence - there's code to prevent problems with clients that occur 
due to buffers running out because of the very low bitrate you get when this 
happens, which is being triggered here. It shouldn't be a problem - but it's 
not that well tested, so it might be being triggered incorrectly here, or 
this might be a symptom of a more severe problem.

I don't have the source around to look at, so I can't really give any more 
specific advice.
