hmm... on the encoding side there are quite a few things that could
affect that, so first I'll ask:

- are you calling the flac binary or calling into libFLAC?
  - if flac, what is the command-line string?
  - if libFLAC, can you post the calls you are using to set up
    the encoder before initialization?
- if you do 'flac -a some24bitfile.flac' that you made, are most/all
of the subframe types VERBATIM?
