I don't know why there's lots of problems lately.  I assume some small
libc implementation changed that icecast must have depended on.  I ran
icecast on 4 boxes, running 6 server per box, with a
straight-out-of-the-box compile for almost a year.  We didn't have any
stuttering problems.

It's true that sock.c did have a bug in it.  But several of the proposed
patches were _wrong_.  The one in CVS should be correct.

Saying that icecast is only appropriate for testing is wrong.  Many
people use it on a daily basis for production work.

It looks like there's a legitimate hard-to-find bug in there somewhere,
but on the bright side, icecast 2 seems to have _none_ of these
problems.  We might try all reporing our glibc versions, OS versions and
vendors, and system load while broadcasting to see if there are any
obvious similarities.
