Flac (1.1.2) doesn't let me embed the follwing cuesheet

CODE
PERFORMER "Performer Name"
TITLE "Album Title"
FILE "mytestfile.wav" WAVE
 TRACK 01 AUDIO
   TITLE "Track01 Title"
   PERFORMER "Performer Name"
   INDEX 01 00:00:00

   ...

with this error:

CODE
ERROR initializing encoder
state= FLAC_STREAM_ENCODER_INVALID_METADATA


Is this a bug or there is something wrong with my cuesheet that I can't spot?

Cheers

Sergio


Edit: spelling. If also a mod could fix the topic title... thanks! (Done, thanks to the mod!)

Edit2: removed great part of the cuesheet as the problem was not with it (see subsequent posts), to make the thread more readable.

Edit3: Modified cuesheet example so that RIAA doesn't sue me, in case I die...

the majority of cuesheet use is via cuesheets ripped from CD-DA, hence the current default towards checking.

The majority, not all of them.

Why checking? That's completely out of the scope of a lossless compressor (I.E, detecting if the original WAV has the correct lenght). People should use an external tool if they want to know if their WAV has a multiple of 588 samples or not (foobar can do that).

Such strictness is just anal, IMO (specially considering there are other sources of CUE files, E.G, hand-made cues done on audio editors), and doesn't help the user in any way whatsoever, this thread being a good proof of it.
