Bug: ReplayGain not saved for some 24-bit wav files

I have several mono and stereo wav files (all good and playable) which I'm trying to ABX compare. For this purpose, I need their gains adjusted.
For most of the files of the bunch ReplayGain scanning worked fine, but there were 4 mono files for which the scanning worked, showing the needed gain adjustment, but when I clicked "Update File Tags", the windows closed, but the info didn't get saved with the files.
I also attempted to convert the files to the same format, just changing the filenames, but this didn't work.
However, when I converted them to 16-bit, the info could be saved. Similarly when I converted them to 24-bit flac files, I could successfully scan and save the gains.

So currently I will use the flacs as a workaround, but obviously, something is wrong with the ReplayGain mechanism.

I tried this with v1.2 and then updated foobar to 1.2.4, but the bug remained.

Here's link to one of the problemmatic files:

(I hope it will work for unregistered users of the gearslutz forum)



Update: initially I linked to the wrong file, link updated.
