FWIW, yesterday I tried to dump the file, and replace the comments
and codebooks packets with some the ones from a known good file,
and dump -r it, but since you say dump -r doesn't preserve segmentation
(not sure what you meant there), that might be why it did not work. I
also don't know how much the codebooks header would change between
files, I didn't try to work out which rate/channels/etc to match with a
codebooks packet from a matching stream.
