I have been experiencing short hangs of one to three seconds, about once per song. This never happened until a week ago, but rather consistently since then. Before that I had been using pianobar without problems for months.
I'm certain it's not my internet connection, the hangs kept happening when I tried in various other (quite capable) networks.
No idea where this is coming from, I hope it's something that can be fixed in pianobar and not due to some change in pandora itself. Is there a buffer setting that could be adjusted, or something like that?
