TOOLS: Voice Cut-Off with LAME compressed .bun files

Description

There is a Bug with Lame compressed .BUN Files.
When I play a Game (especially The Dig) with Lame compressed .BUN Files i am getting Voice Cut-Offs.

For example Boston Low says: "The NASA Simulations are much eas...".
But he should say: "The NASA Simulations are much easier!".

And at the beginning of the Game while you hear radio messages, the Click-Noise after the Radio Messages are missing.

The best way to hear the Cut-Offs is, when you examine the items in the inventory.

So the last parts of the Voices are missing.

I´ve tried several Versions of Lame: 3.98.4, 3.97, 3.91, 3.98.3.
I tried also VBR, ABR and Bitrates from 32kbit to 160kbit.

Everytime the same Problem.

The Problem does not exist with Vorbis or FLAC compressed .BUN Files.

So I did some further testings.
I thought LAME cannot process short wav files (shorter than 2 Seconds) correctly.

Now I encoded some single and very short .wav files from The Dig using the LAME Executable (without using ScummVM Tools).
Now there are no Cut-Offs.

So there are some possible Problem Sources:
-ScummVM got a Bug with reading and playing MP3 files from .BUN files.
-The ScummVM Tool for creating .BUN files got a problem with converting the files to MP3.

In COMI the Problem is not so extremely as in the Dig.
Only when you listen very carefully, you find that there a little bit at the end of the Sentences are missing.

I am using the newest Win32 & PSP Snapshot Builds of ScummVM and the Tools. Also I tried the Release Binaries.
And i am using the German Versions of the Games.

Also a good way to hear the Cut-Offs when you play the Moon-Lander Mini Game on the "Pen Ultimate" in The Dig. Just crash the Lander and listen to Boston Lows Comments.

Confirmed, this is still an issue in ScummVM v2.0.0.

Tested using scummvm-tools v2.0.0 (with default encoding parameters), LAME v3.99, The Dig GOG/German.
