And it's worth pointing out that these flac errors are a good thing. If
someone compresses a show using shorten on the same overheated hardware
and then md5sums the output, they're checksumming the broken output and
won't ever notice the error. Who knows how many etree seeds were
compressed on overheated CPUs like this.
