Package: audacity
Version: 1.3.12-4+b1
Severity: important

I don't know if "open" is the right terminology here, but:

$ file play1*.flac
play1.flac:   FLAC audio bitstream data, 24 bit, stereo, 44.1 kHz, length 
play1_s.flac: FLAC audio bitstream data, 24 bit, stereo, 44.1 kHz, 225787392 

play1.flac was created with GNOME Sound Recorder. play1_s.flac is a re-coded
version of play1.flac, using the `flac` tool to decode it into WAV then encode
it back into FLAC (`flac -d play1.flac && flac -o play1_s.flac play1.wav`)

The two files are otherwise identical, and both have full functionality when
played in totem (ie. random seek, total length known, etc).

However, audacity can only import the latter and NOT the former. When I try
to import play1.flac, literally nothing happens - not even an error message in
the terminal window that it's being run from.

I imagine it's fairly normal to record something then immediately want to edit
it. Audacity claims FLAC support, yet here it leaves no obvious clue here on
how to proceed. I stumbled upon the re-code tactic by sheer luck.
