I second that. Apparently it depends on the kind of music, some 
albums have no warnings (mostly classical music it seems), some 
have over 20 per file. I've seen a few with > 100 per file 
(things like rock and heavy metal). Most of the FLAC files were 
encoded with FLAC 1.2.1.

The same is true for 24-bit files. I checked some orchestral 
music with no warnings, while NIN's The Slip (downloadable free 
of charge in 96/24) does, track 2 gives ~ 1900 warnings. These 
files too, were encoded with FLAC 1.2.1
