I guess you could put some printfs in shout_sleep and/or timing_sleep.
Could you first double-check that timing_sleep in
ices/libshout/timing.c looks like this:

void timing_sleep(long sleeptime)
{
        struct timeval sleeper;

        sleeper.tv_sec = sleeptime / 1000;
        sleeper.tv_usec = (sleeptime % 1000) * 1000;

        select (1, NULL, NULL, NULL, &sleeper);
}

and that you are not using an installed, older version of
libshout. ldd ices and check which libshout it is using. Ideally
libshout won't show up at all. You might try building
--without-libshout just to make sure.
