Addition: today, I've scanned my HD for more of these
problematic files and I found alot of them:(( Especially
ACE archives cause this error, but also certain Baldur's
Gate & Diablo2 save files(:-)) and even BMP files! What
puzzles me is that none of these files has a 'fLaC'
signature at the beginng. Doesn't libFLAC test this ID?
