That puzzles me. The -6 panic means that the file couldn't be found when
the Xing header was to be added. I can't understand why that happens.

OK, so that means that the Xing header creation tries to open a file
that doesn't exist, or at least hasn't been closed yet...hmmm...

I can't think of any. You verified that all files were there and that
they sounded OK. That's all I need to know. Thanks a lot for your
