RoarAudio PlayList Daemon calls a shell script with the following cmd lion:
 $ gst-launch fdsrc fd=0 ! decodebin ! audioconvert ! capsfilter caps="audio/x-raw-int,width=16,channels=2,rate=44100" ! fdsink fd=3 > /dev/null 2> /dev/null

> b) the type of stream and the used GStreamer elements
I'm not Stephan Jauernick but I think he talks about some MP3 (webradio) stream.
Headers and ICY meta data is striped before data is send to gst.

> c) where exactly the memory gets lost?
Everytime I try to attach any kind of debugger gst does segfaulst,
hangs in the startup code or does quit because of wrong timing.

(My knowlage of gst is very limited so the above may not be correct,
 just how I understand the messages.)

Not tested by me.
