I'm starting to suspect xACT. I've seen problems with the third
party front ends before. Personally, I only use the official command
line for flac, particularly since I deal with original recordings and
FLAC is my backup format of choice. I just can't afford to let a
third-party programmer make mistakes.
FYI: I grabbed an old FLAC from my hardware recording device, and
"metaflac --show-md5sum T99.FLAC" says
"00000000000000000000000000000000" ... so that's what it looks like
when the MD5 checksum is completely missing. This is obviously not
your problem, but I wanted to specifically rule it out since we've
not had any luck so far.
