Ah, I found this one while playing with ices on solaris. The problem
seems to be a truncation error in libshout's timing/timing.c, in
timing_sleep, which results in ices not sleeping at all between
chunks. I hope you're experiencing the same problem, because I posted
a patch a couple days ago. Check out the CVS or wait for 0.2.1.

good story :)

icecast is moving to icecast 2, but ices isn't dead yet either. At
least, I plan to keep maintaining it.
