For first test I used WMA file from bug #1055:
Decoded with dBpoweramp or Microsoft's wmal2pcm.exe I got 1410612 samples.
Decoded with ffmpeg (without taking skip value): 1413120
During decoding last frame, get_bits1() returned 460 samples to skip.
Difference is 2048+460 samples, so it should skip one full frame (I 
wonder which one) and 460 from last one?

Next test: hand-crafted file with 15000 samples. All of them zeros apart 
from last 14 bytes, then encoded with MS Expression Encoder
wmal2pcm.exe decoded it perfectly
ffmpeg after taking skip value into account also created file with right 
length, however all samples were 0 (last 14 non-zero bytes got destroyed).

So it is step in right direction, but not completely correct yet.
