This - amazingly enough - probably means that there's corrupt or missing data
in your files. Can you give more details about them? ogginfo should tell you
more exactly what is wrong with them (and note that this is only a warning -
it's not an error in itself)

That's an extremely high bitrate for streaming - and anyway, if you want to
stream at the same bitrate as the files already are, why would you turn
reencoding on?

No, it doesn't - and there's no reason, in fact, that it would _ever_ be the same.
