That's actually good. It's easy to miss problems that only occur after an hour
if the software only runs for three to six minutes.

The dumps occured when switching from one song to the next. I'm using ogg123
under Linux to play the stream, so I don't know if it's capable of "cascade
rebuffering". The thing is, when it dumped, I managed to connect to the stream

A few runs later, it just suddenly disconnected, and I was unable to reconnect
that time. IIRC, it was during We The People.

What was the address of the client that went bust? I don't think it was me,
but it can't hurt to check.
