     I had this once, I think it's to do with your settings and that you
have required files installed for those settings. For the ripper I have
grip cdparanoia as the ripper (check it's installed) rip file format as
~/ogg/%A/%d/%n.wav , encoder as oggenc, encoder executable as
/usr/bin/oggenc, encode file format as ~/ogg/%A/%d/%n.ogg. If something
is set wrong, you end up ripping and encoding in seconds, giving you
those small files.
