Open them in fb2k - you'll see that they are correct APE tags.
Due to the APE tag uses ID3v1 "TAG" signature in their header "APETAGEX", there are some cases, in that the program that supports ID3v1 WILL think that file have ID3v1, when actually no. <open in any prog except fb2k>

This prog WILL corrupt APE tag on editing.

The second case occures when the tag frames contains "TAG" combination.

So, APE cannot be used without ID3v1, if not backward compatible to pre-existing tagging scheme.

I think what this fault is because APE was NOT designed specially for MP3.

Now i investigating if it can cause false syncs...
