So I found a fladc file with an SBE. I tried running shntool fix. (shntool fix *.flac) and it gave me this error:
shntool [fix]: error: need two or more files to process


However I found I could fix it by doing the following:

decoded to wav
checked wav for SBE, tested postive
re-encoded to flac, tested for SBE, tested negative
decoded new flad to wav, tested for SBE, tested negative
kept my new flac for archiving and tossed the rest

Does that work too?
All you've done via this process is padded the end of the file with silence. This is not a proper SBE fix unless the track is the last track in a musical set.
