Similarly, if the wave files you compress don't have SBEs in them, then your flac files won't have SBEs either, regardless of whether you use the flac sector align feature.

I think that's pretty straight forward.
So - in answering my question if the original .wav files have the sbe's and when you convert to flac without the --sector-align option, the frontend will not (in a sense) fix the sbe's????.
