[icecast] Icecast2 Beta 1 hijacks CPU

I'm running Icecast 2 Beta 1 which satisfies my needs - high quality audio 
serving @ reasonably low bitrates.

The problem is however that it tends to hog the CPU resources after having 
run for like a day/day and a half. Source and client connections fail when 
this happens.
I'm using psmon to monitor icecast (respawn when it dies or kill/respawn 
when it starts to eat CPU).

I use Winamp icw Oddcast (www.oddsock.org) as source.

I've compiled icecast using the libs provided in the snapshot archive. I'm 
not sure if those are up to date or not....(should I use CVS?) :

- libogg-1.1-20031120.tar.gz
- libvorbis-1.0.1-20031120.tar.gz

These have been compiled using:
