Please report upstream.

It seems that I'm not all alone, there is already a ticket similar to my issue: <>. But now I've taken actions before asking this crucial question: can you/anyone else reproduce this problem with archlinux? I would like to know if this is only a problem with my specific archlinux installation or a generic problem with flac or the package. Please look into the upstream ticket for a sample flac and cue sheet. Thanks!

Can you attach the cuesheet file?

A cue sheet file should be included in the archive linked on the upstream ticket:

It seems like this has been already fixed in the commit;a=commit;h=606fdfcaece19d3e05434bde57c289102a369069 . Can we have this patch downstream, please?
