It is very different to freedb, that had open community data, this is a closed off system.
Other Lossy Codecs / Re: lossyWAV 1.4.2 Development (was 1.5.0)

@Nick.C What's our next step here? What should be improved here, LossyWAV or Vorbis?
In my opinion Vorbis should be fixed to properly handle chunks of odd length, in line with the Microsoft/IBM RIFF specification, based on the EA/Commodore IFF specification that preceded it.

A quick and nasty solution would be for lossyWAV to increase the length and stated size of the FACT chunk, if required, to ensure that it is always even, however this would perpetuate support for applications that don't handle WAV files correctly.

Hello @Peter , thanks for  your prompt follow-up. Understood how to repair the config.sqlite by myself.
Here you are the suspected corrupted config.sqlite file along with the crash report I had right now on FB closure.
I think this last crash my be connected with the "broken" config.sqlite file.
PS: Crash report also sent by regular service as usual.
Thanks and regards, Andrea

Peter edit: Attachments removed, I got the files, thanks
