I also had this verify error encoding a wav I ripped from a CD. I didn't
report this as it happended on flac running on debian linux -current unstable.
This error happened only with one track of a CD I was ripping.

Another reason for me not reporting this was, that flac 1.0 running on OpenBSD
2.9 encoded the wav with no error.. maybe this is linux-specific.

Now this is how it looked..
