Re: What does this shntool output mean?

Just some extra insight here...I've seen that "h" appear as the result of using cue-points in Cool Edit. Many wav editing programs add some kind of non-audio data into the header that they use. It's possible that these files have been edited in some way. Either way, that data is really useless to you now, and you can disard it without affecting the audio of the file.

Yes, FLAC will automatically delete that information, and if you use FLAC frontend, the cmd window that pops up will actually give you some feedback that it's removing additional header data when it encodes the file.

Edit to add: I see you're on a Mac, so you may not get feedback when converting to FLAC on your system, but guaranteed that just doing the FLAC conversion will remove that 'h' from the file.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
