Thanks Monty and Ulrich for the reply, I figured out what the problem
was. It wasn't the files themselves, it was the Winamp player!
I tried changing the vorbis encoding quality factor to 6.6, no difference.
I tried quality factor of 10, still no difference. I didn't set any
replay gain. These files are ripped into WAV (and flac) directly and
converted into vorbis using oggenc.
Then I changed to using foobar2000 for playback, and there is no more
distortion and no more glitches between tracks.
FWIW, xmms on Linux also exhibits track-gap glitches with this album,
but I don't hear the distortion at the last track.
I've used xmms and Winamp regularly and this is the first time I
noticed these problems. Curiously, they work fine with the WAV
and flac versions of this album. Something about the way they handle
vorbis files? I dunno...
