Revisiting this issue, it doesn't sound at all like the previously
linked example output. I was confused, it's similar, but seems to be
related to quantization rather than buffer misalignment. It sounds as
if some components were allocated too few bits, in spite of a
relatively high bitrate selection (256k).

I will post a minimal test case in a few days (I've been busy with RL issues).
