This is probably a case where error recovery on a network problem is not
handled good enough at the moment.  If you want something to try out
then the ices/libshout changes I did some time ago handles these cases
far better.

tarballs on


They are both in svn now, and various bits are being merged into trunk.
libshout is API compatible to trunk but ices requires some small changes
to your existing xml, the examples in conf should show the differences
easy enough.
