Package: flac
Version: 1.2.1-6
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

That's what I have:

$ flac -d --silent -V "03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac" -o "03 I Am a Child of God -s3.wav"

03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac: *** Got error code 3:FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_ERROR_STATUS_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM
03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac: *** Got error code 0:FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_ERROR_STATUS_LOST_SYNC

03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac: ERROR while decoding data
                                 state = FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_READ_FRAME

The FLAC stream may have been created by a more advanced encoder.  Try
  metaflac --show-vendor-tag 03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac
If the version number is greater than 1.2.1, this decoder is probably
not able to decode the file.  If the version number is not, the file
may be corrupted, or you may have found a bug.  In this case please
submit a bug report to
Make sure to use the "Monitor" feature to monitor the bug status.

$ metaflac --show-vendor-tag '03 I Am a Child of God -s3.flac'
reference libFLAC 1.1.2 20050205

I can listen from this file to the end - seems alright to me. So I suppose it is a bug.

I can not submit the bug as the web page here refered does not contain such an option.
Also I do not have 'the "Monitor" feature' at all.

Please fix it if You will/can OR pass it along to the FLAC developers.

Thank You for Your work for Debian.
