Just came across these two Ogg/Vorbis files (possibly ripped using S-J in late
2003/early 2004):


Both don't play with GStreamer, but with vlc/mplayer.

One errors out, according to the debug log because it can't find a chain
(rotten error message though), the other just silently EOSes and playbin2 hangs

oggz-validate has this to say:
serialno 0425719003: missing *** bos
536471: serialno 0425719003: Packet belongs to unknown serialno
(rinse and repeat)

Haven't investigated this further yet. Maybe it's just a WONTFIX, but then the
other players play this fine and we probably created the files back in the day.
