[icecast] ices question about -R/-b/-H switches

when reencoding with ices, i recognized that -H <sample-rate> works
fine for anything higher than <sample-rate>, means if an mp3 has a
bit/sample rate of lets say 128kbit/s/44,1khz, ices -R -b 64 -H 22050 ...
works fine, but files with a lower sample rate play in "fast forward"
quality... is that right? only downsampling works with ices?

i have to deal with a (changing) bunch of files which have pretty
different sample and bitrates, 16-44,1khz, 24-128kbit/s, trying to
avoid resampling/reencoding with lame before streaming with ices.
i'd rather do it without touching the files. any idea?

thanks, uno
