Thanks for the reply.  No, the lame command is used when I rip & encode
my music for archival purposes, and isn't otherwise used at the time of
streaming the mp3s.  In the command above, the '-b 128' sets the minimum
allowed bitrate for VBR encoding.

Again, it has worked fine with ices 0.1.0, so I'm tempted to conclude
that it's an ices problem and not a lame problem.
