FLAC seeking not working via FTP

I'm on 1.3.0 build #719 (Android).
Seeking in FLAC files works when they're stored on the phone, but not when they're supplied via FTP.
Seeking in MP3 files works both locally and via FTP.

Is that a bug in the app?
Or was this probably caused by the latest libFLAC 1.3.4 update?

Just tried the VLC app and created a FTP connection.
Seeking in FLACs works there, so it seems like some bug in foobar2000.

I just observed a difference:
  • accessing a FLAC file from the FTP source after scanning via the Album browser: seeking bar is displayed, but displays "unsupported format or corrupted file" once used
  • accessing a FLAC file via Foobars FTP browser: seeking bar isn't offered at all

Would also like to have this feature for foobar2000 working.

I just saw that seeking in remote OGG files was fixed in the latest beta.
Was hoping that this would maybe also fix the issue with FLAC files, but this is not the case (yet).

Apparently the OGG seeking problem still exists, at least for FTP locations.
Playing an OGG file from a remote FTP location doesn't show any seeking bar at all.

Playing a FLAC file via FTP shows the seeking bar, but it's not working.
