I wanted to convert a FLAC file to Ogg Vorbis. audio-convert converts this into a WAV as an intermediate file for the conversion.

However, there was already a WAV in my working directory with the same name that audio-convert would use as the intermediate. Instead of using a temp name, it overwrote my other WAV and then deleted it.

I suggest putting the intermediate WAV in /tmp or something.
