[Icecast] ices-kh60: latency bug

I've just got ices-kh60 running with jack. It's working OK apart from a 
problem where the latency on the stream creeps up from about 15-20 secs to 
around 7 minutes. The stream plays OK, but the audio coming out is 7 minutes 
behind what goes in. I'm not sure how this can be happening, seeing as I 
don't think there are any buffers that long in the system, but it is. I've 
checked that it's not a problem with the player app I'm using (amarok), and 
it isn't - even if I reconnect the stream, there is still a long latency.

I suspect the problem is caused by running the stream for long periods with no 
audio input (zero sound level from an unconnected jack graph), as this is 
what seems to cause it.

any help with this would be appreciated.
