Thanks, this is very interesting.

It is embarrassing, I cannot replicate it either. The only explanation I 
can find is that I was not running flac from the command line but 
through the command line function dos() of Scilab. When arranging the 
command string to pass to the function I used string variables instead 
of the actual 0 and 1, and it is possible that they contained different 
values from the desired (and believed) ones.

Apologies, my fault.
