[icecast] slow buffering?

I am running the latest CVS version of Icecast2, updated as of this

One thing I've noticed since I've started using Icecast2, is that
Icecast2 is quite slow with its pre-buffering - even with only 1 or 2
users connected to a 24Kbps relayed MP3 stream.

The load on the p2-233 server (128mb RAM) is minimal, it usually
stays below 0.08. I first thought this was related to my <queue-size>
setting, but lowering that from 102400 to 51200 doesn't make things much

Is Icecast2 indeed slow at this, or am I totally overlooking something?
