THen I suggest you start to look elsewhere for your problem.  libshout
is quite well tested and every time someone has thought it was skipping,
it turned out to be NTP chaning their clock or a slow harddrive or
something similar.

What kidn of files are you streaming?  Have you ran them through
mp3check and mp3_check?  Is load goign up when it starts skipping?  How
about disk usage?  Can you monitor bandwidth and make sure sporadic
spurts aren't the problem?

Is it better if you drastically increase your buffer size?
