FLAC v1.2.1b Bundle for Windows issue: Version info is incorrect and complete re-write of file

These are the issues:
* In this first issue when viewing the file properties in Foobar2000 it will list the incorrect version info as "reference libFLAC 1.1.0 20030126" when I've insured I've encoded with "reference libFLAC 1.2.1 20070917", and I know for with certainty I can't and couldn't use any older FLAC version like that because those prior to v1.2.1 didn't like my computer at all. I've even re-downloaded the FLAC v1.2.1b Bundle for Windows ("flac-1.2.1b.exe") and overwritten/overinstalled what I already had and it's still the same.

I've noticed that it only happens if I use the FLAC Bundle for Windows that comes with Speeks FLAC frontend to do the encoding. After I complete tagging an album in Foobar2000, and then look in the Properties it will list the incorrect version information. Now here's what's strange if I do all of the encoding via Foobar2000 I don't run into this issue at all! So I'd suppose there's some tagging component in the FLAC bundle responsible for this?

* In this second issue I've noticed that Foobar2000 is doing what I think is a complete re-write of the flac's - remember these are the problem flac's with the wrong version info in them. First I can change a few simple text in the tags and it will update them very fast. Then when for instance applying ReplayGain or inputting additional tag info I had forget it will take forever to update the tags.

I've also did some very brief testing by encoding via Foobar2000 and haven't yet ran into the issue with it wanting to completely re-write the whole file when tagging.

So am I to assume there are issues with the FLAC v1.2.1b Bundle for Windows causing all of this? I've been using it for years and never bothered once to look at the properties before in Foobar2000 until the other day, and then thought that along with the very slow tagging/complete file re-write could be somehow related.

Complexity of incoherent design.
