So when you're listening before the fallback, it's not anywhere near this 
far behind?

I'm guessing that maybe Icecast is not sending the stream at the 
approximate bitrate, but is pushing it as quickly as it can down the pipe. 
Either that or Icecast is filling some internal queue with the MP3 data 
from the file.  I guess it'd be easy enough to check which this is.
