Let me be clearer on this, the check in ices is not a problem, it is
there purely as a simple mechanism to avoid a stability/playback problem
downstream, this log message just tells the user that the current file
is going to be skipped, it's then up to the playlist maintainer to
resolve any issues.

For the time being either re-order the playlist slightly (if it's just
between two files, most likely) or rebuild the ogg file in question so
that it's serial number is unique. sox may be creating duplicate serial
numbered files I don't know I haven't used it for encoding.
