Here's a copy of the config file.  I've checked the specified directory many
times but there's never any updates to it.  I can't imagine what might be

                <!-- input module
                         This example uses the 'oss' module. It takes input from the
                         oss audio device (i.e. line-in), and processes it for live

                <!-- Stream instance
                         You may have one or more instances here. This allows you to 
                         send the same input data to one or more servers (or to different
                         mountpoints on the same server). Each of them can have different
                         parameters. This is primarily useful for a) relaying to multiple
                         independent servers, and b) encoding/reencoding to multiple
                         If one instance fails (for example, the associated server goes
                         down, etc), the others will continue to function correctly.
                         This example defines a single instance doing live encoding at
                         low bitrate.

                                 You define hostname and port for the server here, along with
                                 the source password and mountpoint. 

                        <!-- Live encoding/reencoding:
                                 channels and samplerate currently MUST match the channels
                                 and samplerate given in the parameters to the oss input
                                 module above.
