I tried this - mainly as a way of investigating my problem with listening to
French radio .ogg streams - and I get the same message in the log, but the
sound keeps on playing for the next song. Sounds a bit repetitive, but I
think that's the nature of the music (writes an old git). So maybe the two
things aren't related?

Could you do me a favour and try this stream:
http://ogg.tv-radio.fr:1441/encoderfip.ogg

On my system (SB1, SS 5.4.1, OS X 10.3.8), this plays at many times the
correct rate - do you get the same result?

Thanks,
