You're right. Sorry. See [1].

The same issue exists when re-encoding. [2] Though, through this
exercise I've discovered that the problem is related to embedded
images in the mp3s. The failing files all have one or more mjpeg
streams in addition to the audio stream. If strip these out and keep
only the audio stream, it works. [3] I want to keep the embedded
images too though.

Thanks for the help.
