Bug#552616: libvorbis0a: cutting files via the Python bindings fails: "ogg.OggError: lost sync"

Package: libvorbis0a
Version: 1.2.3-3
Severity: normal


I'm using oggscissors.py to recalculate the granulepos of files recorded
with streamripper:
oggscissors.py infile.ogg outfile.ogg

Using version 1.2.0.dfsg-3.1 of the libvorbis* packages this works fine.
However updating to 1.2.3-3 breaks the above and I get the following
Python error message:

oggscissors.py infile.ogg outfile.ogg
Dumping pages 3
Counting packets
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./oggscissors.py", line 377, in <module>
    n, pages, packets, os, grskip = copy_packets(fin, fout, os, startpacket, count, pages, packets, grskip, 1)
  File "./oggscissors.py", line 108, in copy_packets
    total_packets = count_packets(fin) - skip_packets
  File "./oggscissors.py", line 85, in count_packets
    p = instream.packetout()
ogg.OggError: lost sync

I don't know if this is due to a deficiency in the python bindings. I
tried the available versions of the python-ogg and python-pyvorbis
packages without success. So I guess it's a problem in the C library

I attached the oggscissors.py script. The ogg file can be found under 


Thank you and
best regards
