[Flac-dev] Need AMD debugging help

To all who have an AMD + Windows based PC:
I have gotten a few similar bug reports about encoding
errors with FLAC. The common features are:
- Repeatedly encoding the same file with verify will have
verify errors some of the time (looks like aroung 50%) and
the verify errors will occur in different places each time.
- This is happening on AMD PCs running Windows. More reports
come from Athlon systems but there has been one from a Duron.
More reports come from win2k but there has been one from
win98se and XP.
- Some people are using only the win32 binary flac release but
a couple have compiled from source, even under cygwin, with
similar results (see links at the end).
Since I have neither an AMD machine nor Windows > NT4,
I need some help tracking this down. I'm not *totally*
convinced its flac's fault since I know some people here use
AMD's and no one's brought it up here. It could be a case that
when it works there's no need to say anything; but now there is.
If anyone with a similar set up can read the comments in the
following bug reports and do some investigation it would really
help a lot. I would like to hear about setups that are working
as much as ones that aren't.
