I had a FLAC file which I decoded using the reference decoder. As expected, the WAV file was larger than the FLAC one: it had 51.304.506 bytes. Then, I coded this WAV file and got a FLAC file.

However, while the first one had 31.240.944 bytes, the second one had 29.144.603 bytes. After that, I decoded this final FLAC file and the resultant WAV file had 51.304.220 bytes.

So, where is the lossless compression? Curiously, when I compared these files with 'diff' command, it shows they're equal. How is this possible, if they have different sizes?
