Hmm, I don't think it transcoded mine to mp3... the file on the iPod seemed to be an m4a. I could decode it with faad, for instance, although it sounded pretty bad. Also, it was the exact same size as the original. However, the iPod wouldn't play it... The thing is, it doesn't really matter what the output format is. The problem here seems to be that Rhythmbox either doesn't think that the iPod can handle AAC files, or it's reencoding the AAC file, both of which are bad things.
