Well not really TBH. I don't actually use it myself (I just get my 
curiosity piqued easily!)

I'd try replacing the shout2send part of the pipeline with another 
"thingy" (I don't know the term!) perhaps filesink? Slap it to a .ogg 
file and make sure it's OK.... if it's not then I guess it some other 
part of the pipeline and you can perhaps fiddle with it a bit to try and 
work out what's going on...
