I've seen several people report problems like this, but I've never 
experienced it.  I run an Internet radio station on a VM.  Our automation 
encodes, adds dynamic compression and does crossfading, as well as 
transcoding to a narrowband stream, and it copes nicely.  Of course, if I 
start up more encoder processes, I run into trouble, but this works for
