Using the FLAC frontend with flac v1.0.2, I tried to encode a recently
recorded 24-bit mono wav to flac, but received the following error:

options: -P 0 -b 4608 -m -l 12 -e -q 0 -r 0,6 -R 0
gpt2002-06-01mono.wav: ERROR: unsupported bits per sample 24

So, I tried to encode a stereo 24-bit wave file... same error.

I'm using the .exe of flac v1.0.2 under Windows 2000.  The wave files can be
downloaded from:


Can anyone else reproduce this error?  What's the resolution?
