What changed?  I don't remember changing anything like that,
maybe I checked something in by accident...

Unfortunately according to the format the frame size is not
stored anywhere so the decoder would have to track it.  I am
running into a similar problem: I am adding an option to
metaflac to add seekpoints and it has to know the same thing,
so I will be adding a function in libFLAC that makes it possible
for the client to keep track of this also.

Yeah, the winamp2 plugin does it but the xmms plugin doesn't.
It's easy to add though.
