Yeah, there's a lot of spare CPU power and memory.  The icecast server 
takes 0,0% CPU and each streamTranscoder instance only takes 0,0-0,3%. 
This is a dedicated Icecast server with 1GHz PIII and 512 MB RAM.

Yep.  Nothing there.  The only clue I've found is the recurring "Read -3 
ret from ov_read" message in the streamTranscoder debug logs (see my 
earlier link to the sT bug report).  Not that I can make anything out of 

It seems that other people are having very similar-sounding problems:
