It was the changes noted at 
http://trac.xiph.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/changeset/9465, starting at line 468 
that made me think this new code might accommodate the mp3's particular 
problem. Seems to have done it, as that playlist ran flawlessly for hours 
today after installing kh13. (I can send you the offending music file 
offlist if you want it, if that's what you meant.)

Yup. Must have got caught right in it toward the end of the download so I 
had a "big" file, not an obvious error. kh14 compiles perfectly now.
