Yes, always the same error - but only (no joke) on option -8 , not -9 or
anything below.

I tried to clip both ends of the original wav, but the error was only
reproduceable, when I cut of the end of the wav. When i cut off only one
second from the start of the soundfile verify did not complain anymore.
So the "rest" is now about 25 megabytes.

I don't have a high bandwith link, so if you mail me an ftp-account/login
I`ll upload the wav to the place for vivisection purposes ;-)

To get something done, a committee should consist of no more than three
