As stated in my post of Feb 17, all my test files were prepared
with LAME 3.95.1 on windows. VBR files were created with
--preset medium, CBR files with --preset CBR <bitrate>, where
bitrate was 96 kBit/s for 24000/22050 Hz, 64 kBit/s for 16000 Hz
and 48 kBit/s for 12000/11025 Hz. No ID3v1 or ID3v2 tags or
other esoteric stuff was added.

I have temporarily uploaded them to my webspace (also happens to
be at T-Online). I hope this is ok for you.

Unfortunately I did not yet set up a development environment for
Rockbox. I guess this will need some time, since I've already
installed some cygwin components and have to check what to keep
and what to overwrite. Perhaps I will do this at the weekend.
