I would not be surprised, even though I haven't seen this
in a while.  I'm still not totally satisfied with the
speed of the seek routine in libFLAC yet.

but, if you encoded with the default seek table, it should
not be that slow, even if the file is really big.  the only
thing I can think of is that the file has wide swings in the
bitrate that make searching for the right frame harder.
