I've got one track that this happens on and I've always thought the
track was messed up. However, upon closer inspection I've found that the
track itself is fine. However, when the track is captured using the save
stream utility it does not play back properly.

Using the mp3_check utility it becomes clear that some of the frames end
up being two bytes short, which causes freeamp to skip the following
frame since the sync marker got consumed as part of the previous frame.

I tried upgrading my icecast server, but that failed miserably on my old
mandrake box that I use as my Obsequiuem server. I would suspect this to
be an icecast problem -- can you upgrade your icecast server to the
latest and greatest?
