Aleksander Korzynski pointed out to me the recent LAME heresy with 
respect to Replay Gain: rather than using the 83 dB SPL reference 
specified by the Replay Gain proposed standard, LAME uses a reference 
of 89 dB as of version 3.95.1.

Combined with the default pre-amp gain of +6 dB implemented in madplay, 
this often results in an over-amplified signal and clipping when Replay 
Gain is enabled.

I've just released version 0.15.2b of madplay that compensates for this 
problem:
