Winamp streaming on localhost from localhost

I am streaming over a private LAN.

Actually I am running SC server and Winamp on the same PC (localhost), using the output for an FM broadcast. The encoder is on our media server in our studio. I have been having issues with trying to tweak Winamp to make the buffer refresh and as infrequent as possible, but after about an hour or so, it will buffer every 5 or so minutes. I would assume that being a low-latency stream since the server and the client are on the same PC, there would a minimal amount of buffering, if any.

I have tried, MAD & the default MPEG encoder that come with Winamp & recently have been installing the Betas to see if that helps. Nothing seems to fix it.

Has anyone else tried this type of setup and what did you do to resolve this issue?
