[icecast] Stuttering stream after 1 minute

After one minute of connection the stream from our icecast 1.3.10 server
(debian package 1.3.10-2) starts stuttering. And after some stuttering the
client is disconnected by the server. The usual client is a windows winamp.

The icecast logs shows that the the client is not receiving data fast
enough. A small part out the logs is shown below. That the data is not
received fast enough is rediculous because we have a 100mbit LAN here.

Anyway... I'm using shout (1.4.0-3) to stream the sourcedata without
re-encoding to the server... Could that be a problem? I'm willing to try
other packages like ices but not before I'm sure that the source client is
the problem..

best regards,
