Ok, the config file says you can get chrips in your audio unless "you're 
careful."  I thought this was mostly fixed in 1.3.9 and greater.. I got all 
kinds of garbage using it in 1.3.7, but have had no problems in 1.3.9 or 
1.3.10 until today.

Just a few minutes ago my stream started chirping and squealing.. so I had 
to disconnect the source and client, and reconnect them.. which seems to 
fix the problem.

My question is.. what exactly is meant by "unless you're careful?"  What 
should I do "carefully" to make sure this doesn't happen?

FWIW, I'm using winamp 2.72 + Shoutcast DSP 1.8.0 to source from Win2k pro, 
the server is icecast 1.3.10 on FreeBSD 3.5-STABLE.
