TagLib 1.5 was not released, that's just Fedora's SVN shapshot version.
As far as I can see, the latest snapshot is from 2007-11-11, the bug
about MPEG2 streams was fixed on 2007-11-22.

Can you point me to a file that reports incorrect size and it's not
caused by the two bugs already fixed (incorrect channel mode parsing and
incorrect frame sizes for MPEG2/2.5 streams)?
