I thought it was probably something like that...

Yeah... i know the zero value is ok... but i wanted to fill it in to make 
sure it's ok for all players. And also when it converts the old flac to the 
new flac, it fills in that field.

All working now... can handle both formats... original ogg flac and the new 
ogg flac.
