FLAC fuckup
I haven't heard anybody else mentioning this. I've experienced a quite annoying playback bug with FLACs in Foo since it's birth and doesn't seem like it's solved yet. When transporting yourself within a FLAC and you accidently move outside the file XP (& 2000?) first slows down to the speed of frozen molasses (even the mouse can't be moved properly) & then crashes windows. Further description of the bug:
1. Start up a FLAC, let's imagine it's 3:00
2. Use whatever key assigned for transporting yourself ahead either one minute or 5 seconds until you've reached 2:56 or just listen to the song until you're there.
3. Now transport yourself ahead 5 seconds. As there's only 4 seconds left of the song the bug is introduced.
It works just as well to place yourself at ie. 2:15 and use whatever key assigned to move one minute ahead. Well, you get the idea...
This is a nasty bug & happens me at least some time every day when fiddling to fast with the keys. Please just don't say the flac lib is fuct, I already know that is the general consensus.

This is fixed in CVS, it's a bug in libFLAC.  The workaround is for the caller to cap the target seek sample to total_samples-1 (total_samples is in the STREAMINFO metadata block).

That sounds promissing (but who am I to judge). Is there a chance you might be able to fix it Peter?

Big thanks for fixing this bug! Now there is no reason for me not to play flacs with Foobar.
