Shoutcast buffering but is not skipping

Hi all,

I'm currently having a problem with my radio.

First off a run down on my setup is:
1 Linux VPS 256MB OpenVZ - Ubuntu Server
1 Shoutcast Server running
2 Shoutcast sc_trans instances running - Two streams each.

What happens is that when listening in Winamp it constantly says "Buffering" then a percentage between 60-90%. But the fact is its not actually buffering at all. Coincidently I believe this problem has also caused my online jWplayer to stop working as it stopped working around the same time. Throughout all this users can listen in iTunes fine although the other day I noticed the stream paused for a couple of seconds out of the blue which I've never had before. I've researched and tried different buffer values in the configuration files and have observed the log files of all sc_trans instances and the shoutcast server but there are no hints why this is happening.

This has started happening out of the blue, I have not installed any updates or done anything to cause this. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
