[icecast] Stuttering stream

This reminds me of a problem I've been having occasionally with ices...
once in a while, instead of properly decoding and re-encoding the MP3 for
my stream, it'll stream gibberish (basically, it sounds like a "cooked"
MP3). After that, maybe 1 time out of 3, it'll segfault and crash. Even
in verbose mode, ices doesn't report anything other than "resyncing".
Vitals: icecast 1.3.11, ices 0.2.2.
Any ideas? The MP3s play back just fine in xmms.
