For certain files, wav->flac->wav produces a wave file
that does not match the original. On decode, flac warns
that the md5 check has failed.
I noticed that when copying a number of tracks to my
HD for jukebox-style playback, I heard pops and clicks (I
know what you're thinking, but they are not in the wave
I'll have to see if I can come up with a smaller, non-
copyrighted sample, but one way to replicate the
problem is to extract track 1 or 2 from Blood Money
(Tom Waits) and encode either one using flac. I'm using
EAC with offsets corrected for my drive; the MD5
signatures I'm getting for tracks 1 and 2 are
I'm using an Athlon 1800+.
