Thanks for the detailed description.
Could you provide this file to us (off-list, though - either directly to me
via email, or putting it up on a website somewhere), so that we can figure
out what's going wrong?
I'd be very surprised if the file was valid - vorbisfile should probably be
rejecting it, but ideally, it should not be possible to crash vorbisfile with
invalid input. So any file that can cause a crash would be welcome!
Additionally, I'd very strongly recommend you upgrade to vorbis 1.1. This
particular problem doesn't sound like anything I remember being fixed in 1.1,
but many other bugs were, and encoder quality was also improved.
