I'm not entirely sure. Certainly, playback is flawless with Winamp.
Every now and then, Ices seems to just stop, and swallow up all my CPU. 
I'm not sure if this was caused by my playlist having non-existant file 
entries, or whether it was caused by me trying to make it play mp3's. In 
any case, it's been running all night (almost 9 hours now..) without 
problems, so perhaps it was just the phase of the moon...
What sort of continuous running times can I expect? (For Ices i mean - 
icecast seems fine)

I will mail the Freedomaudio people and see what they say.

Thanks a lot for the info.
