"Assertion `chunk->CheckFormat(format)' failed." crashes mpd randomly after running for some time #525

if I let mpd run for a day or two, I come back to this error and a crashed mpd:

mpd: ../src/player/Thread.cxx:785: void PlayerControl::PlayChunk(DetachedSong&, MusicChunkPtr, const AudioFormat&): Assertion `chunk->CheckFormat(format)' failed.

I'm running mpd 0.21.5 on an up-to-date Debian stable.

It doesn't output anything to any physical audio device, but instead sends a MP3 and an OGG stream to an Icecast2 server. I think the crashes stopped happening (or happened less often) when I was only streaming a 128kbps MP3 stream, whereas now I'm streaming a 192kbps stream and a q=7 OGG, but given the timescales needed for the crash to happen, I can't say this for sure.

I have updated my mpd and will try to produce a backtrace, but it might take a day or two unfortunately.
