'Write cover art to tags' error with W...

    I'm under Freac version 20110524 (x64) because it is faster than 1.20a

    So, I have detected an error when I converted a FLAC file (including a cover
    album in tags) into a WMA10 file.
    This error comes from 'Write cover art to tags' part with WMAMetaData checked.

    Finally, Freac freezes and closes itself.
    The WMA file is created but MetaData is not written in it and there is no
    cover album copied in it.

    Hi, I think this is not related to writing cover art to WMA files, but rather
    a general instability. In my tests it was no problem to keep cover art when
    converting FLAC to WMA.

    Please try the latest snapshot 20120916 which fixes lots of stability issues
    including previous pseudo-random crashes at the end of the conversion process.

    If the new snapshot does not fix the problem, please email me the problematic
    FLAC file for analysis.

    Sorry, I just noticed that the x64 version of snapshot 20120916 is broken. I
    will make a new snapshot release fixing this and other bugs in one or two

    The new 20120930 snapshot should work better now. Please test if it fixes the
    problem and send me the FLAC file otherwise.
