Description of problem:

To quote Robert Buchholz of Gentoo:

The issue was already known upstream and a change in 
libsndfile-1.0.18pre17 [2] addressed it, but does not fix it robustly. 
Attached is a fix for 1.0.17 (line numbers are including Gentoo's FLAC 
patches [3]) that was approved by upstream.
