  Oh, okay. Now. Sorry, my fault. The files are not corrupt, they are
still valid ogg-files (as in: can be readily played). The content
though is faulty and will sound really bad and even have higher
bitrates than it is supposed to have.

  This is something that might go unnoticed if the quality setting is
high (target bitrate of 256kB/s or so). I will try that.

  It is triggered using no user-supplied optimizations at all, just the
package internal ones.

  I don't know about Sound-Juicer, I always use cdparanoia and oggenc,
but as mentioned above, it might be that the quality setting you use is
high enough to cover the bug.
