Hm ... the two servers are in the same rack. From the one  there is no 
problem to recive data and the other has the troubles. The connection 
can't be the bottle neck.  The MP3 s seams to be ok.  The ices.log  told 
me nothing about an error with the MP3-Files. The only entry I found was:
"Error during send: Libshout reported send error, disconnecting: Socket 
But I can't relate this message  to the "to far behind"-Mesage. There 
are different timestamps.
