it might be totally unrelated, but a few days ago I had a similar problem:
I wanted to do some livestreaming from a windows machine using oddsocks
oddcast DSP (http://www.oddsock.org) to stream to 1.3.10 icecast-server on

I chose 24kpbs mono at 22050 Hz and at first tested it in 
win95. everything worked fine. 
when I tried to do the livestreaming on the "broadcasting" I had to
use win98 (german edition). there the problem occured: the stream was very
distorted and at least twice as fast as it should have been. I tried the 
same using the shoutcast DSP. same effect. 

My conclusion was: this is an error in win98 reading from the soundcard or
something like that. I did not try to find out more, because I do not like
windows. normally I do livestreaming with linux and liveice, but this time
I was unable to get a linux box so I had to use the win98 one...

o maybe there is some problem in the icecast-server with these settings
(22050 Hz, mono, low bitrate)?
