The normal method is to send them to the list, as you've done.
Your patch is incorrect (will cause crashes if used). There's already a
special case for allowing the "fmt " chunk to be of length 18 - this is
incorrect according to every wav spec I've been able to find, but is
common. However, allowing arbitrarily long fmt chunks is definately not
a good idea, so I won't be changing this behaviour unless you can show
me an official wav spec that says this is allowed.
The application that is creating these files is presumably buggy.
