oggdec is a simple decoder, I don't think it handles chaining which is
something you can get from ices.

the save file support in ices is very trivial, and can be affected by
icecast [dis]connections.  You should be able to play those files
without problems, but oggdec can have a problem with these files, not
only because of the effect of the icecast connection but with the
multiple logical streams that they can have from say a metadata update
or a change in the file from a playlist.

I have a more useful save file support in my ices tree if that is a show
stopper for you.
