That's very strange. I've never seen that behaviour. Perhaps you could
give some more detailed explanations of how you've got things set up?
At a minimum:
- icecast version (and what platform you're running it on)
- icecast config file (with passwords blanked out, of course)
- description of _precisely_ what figure you're looking at that's
113 off, and where you found that number.
- description of what sources you have connected, etc.
