Maybe flac is corrupted?

The problem is with the burning program.

It looks like perfectly good noncompliant cue to me.

Decompress the flacs to wave, replace all instances of .flac in the cue sheet to .wav, and then try loading it into EAC.  You will probably not have any errors.

More helpfully: Cue sheets are "officially" designed for "image" rips, where all of the audio is in one file.* You have a rip where the audio is in separate files. It's impossible to have a valid cue sheet for this kind of rip, unless one of the rules for cue sheet formatting is relaxed (the rule about where FILE is allowed). Exact Audio Copy (EAC) is a ripper & burner which relaxes the rule so that the cue sheet can apply to the very common and useful file-per-track type of rip. EAC can create these "noncompliant" cue sheets, and can also burn from them if the source files are WAV, hence greynol's advice to convert them first. The other software you are using is more strict when it reads these cue sheets, even though it doesn't really need to be.

You should read the cue sheet article in our wiki for more info.

* Cue sheets don't have an official spec; they're just a format invented for one of the very first ripping/burning programs, and no one has bothered to turn it into a more general, open, and flexible standard that works with every kind of rip. And technically, they do officially support file-per-track rips, but only when the files are cut with very unusual boundaries ("gaps prepended").

I am ashamed  ... Greynol is right once again  ... I was misslead by the non-codeboxed CUE (no layout) & the line number error messages.

I have an AR(50+) CDImage of a different pressing of your CD ... I splitted it & it looks almost exactly as yours except for timings. I doubt the CUE is damaged at all, I think it's a burning software issue, the software doesn't seem to support CUE with two TRACK command for one FILE command.

Anyway medieval cue splitter is crap, it's more surprising for Nero ... try something specialized in audio like Burrrn, I don't think it is supported anymore but I can't think of anything else as I don't burrrn anymore. Anyway Gambit still rrrullz, so it should work.
