what is the correct way to set tags in mp3 stream set with shout2send?

While I have no problem with setting tags in OGG/Vorbis stream, seems
that the following code simply does not work:

#include <glib.h>
#include <glib-object.h>
#include <gst/gst.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

GstPipeline* pipeline = NULL;
GstElement* source = NULL;
GstElement* converter = NULL;
GstElement* codec = NULL;
GstElement* sink = NULL;

int main (int argc, char ** argv) {
	GMainLoop* loop;

	g_thread_init (NULL);
	g_type_init ();

	gst_init (&argc, &argv);
	loop = g_main_loop_new (NULL, FALSE);

	pipeline = (GstPipeline*) gst_pipeline_new ("pipeline");

	source    = gst_element_factory_make ("audiotestsrc", "source");
	converter = gst_element_factory_make ("audioconvert", "converter");
	codec     = gst_element_factory_make ("lame", "codec");
	sink      = gst_element_factory_make ("shout2send", "sink");

	g_object_set(sink, "mount", "/test", NULL);
	g_object_set(sink, "ip", "", NULL);
	g_object_set(sink, "port", 8000, NULL);
	g_object_set(sink, "password", "hackme", NULL);
	gst_bin_add_many ((GstBin*) pipeline, source, converter, codec, sink, NULL);

	gst_element_link (source, converter);
	gst_element_link (converter, codec);
	gst_element_link (codec, sink);

                          GST_TAG_TITLE,  "Sample Title",
                          GST_TAG_ARTIST, "Sample Artist",

	gst_element_set_state ((GstElement*) pipeline, GST_STATE_PLAYING);

	g_main_loop_run (loop);


	return 0;

I've tried to replace GST_TAG_SETTER(codec) with GST_TAG_SETTER(sink).

Running application with GST_DEBUG=shout2:4 shows that
set_shout_metadata() is not triggered at all with my tags (only
default ones).

Am I doing something wrong or maybe that is just a bug? If the latter
one, I can spend some time on investigating it, but it would be nice
if stop me at this point if it is just my failure.

Thank you,
