Hmm, I did not know that. I have ripped a fair amount of cd to
ogg/vorbis and have not experienced any problems. Could you explain a
little bit more about the bugs in gstreamer?

May not seem serious, but I'm not convinced it can be
retrospectively fixed in affected files as easily as claimed
(because it's difficult to check the output).  Given that
Ogg/Vorbis is supposedly a 'base' plugin I'd have thought
more attention would have been given to this easily
verifiable bug.  Files are produced that break the spec
in a fairly simple way.

(and this also stops gstreamer apps retagging Ogg files)
