I would think so, but I might have missed something.

<p>Here is my IceS2-config - with this one, the problem manifests after 2 
minutes of playing, and the client is disconnected after 3 minutes.

I have tried tweaking bitrate, quality, samplerates etc. While it does 
have _some_ effect on how long the client stays connected, it is not much.
