The only bug I'm aware of is the end-of-line one, where the command-line
utility's output goes one character further than it should, resulting in
extra scrolling when the output is too long for the console.
Anyone using a FLAC front-end will not even be aware of that, and I am
guessing that most possible fixes might break any of the existing front
end tools that depend on this behaviour.
