10.4 doesn't exactly have the most recent versions. Could you try with
the more up-to-date GStreamer packages from the GStreamer PPA for
ubuntu, to see if it still happens with -good 0.10.27?

If yes, could you please file a bug in bugzilla, see
http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/bugs/ ?

Could you check if the problem also happens with just the beginning of
the file? (head --bytes=990k foo.flac > head.flac) If yes, please attach
the beginning to the bug report as well, thanks!
