This error appeared in the other report as well.  It looks like a memory
allocation failure is the cause of the problem.  Is the error easily
reproducible given the failed WAV file?  Can you try trimming down the WAV file
(e.g., with a program like xwave) until you have the smallest chunk which
still triggers the failure?

If you can make the WAV file (or a portion of it that exhibits the problem)
available, that would be a great help.  Note that there should not be any
copyright issues associated with sending a small sample of a song.
