Either dcadec produces broken files, or files are valid but no one
is able to read them correctly.

That's indeed an intersting question. Maybe files of these dimensions simply exceed the specifications (or expectations) of a WAV file.

But when I try to play file with:
all of them see file duration 0:46:26. (sox says: Duration: 00:46:26.50)
I have seen the same result with another extracted-DTS-to-6ch-wav
conversion, in that case sound was torn in some other wrong duration.
The same result if writing to pipe.

I don't know the mediainfo tool (it does not seem to be available from the Debian archive), but I guess that the aforementioned packages all pretty much share their WAV-decoding code. What does the file(1) utility say (what does ffmpeg say) and what happens if you put the WAV file back into a container, say MKV or OGG?

In addition to this one, there is error with output-error handling:
in case of running out of disk space (that is very possible with
so giant WAVs) no error reported, no error status returned, and
decoding process continues to nowhere.

Alright, that's a completely different issue (and certainly worth its own bug report) and I'll try to have a look at it sooner or later.
