Yikes! Really? So AJBR Rockbox will never be rid of this?
MP3Fixer catches it most of the time,
but sometimes it throws away significant amounts of data,
and sometimes it just doesn't fix it.
Knowing what the problem is, would it be possible to write a program
that would reliably fix these files while doing minimum damage?
