"Create sampletrack" crashes Cubase when audio is in flac format

Cubase Pro 9.0.40 (Same issue with prior version)

  1. project setup: record in flac format
  2. record audio
  3. right click on the recorded audio event -> AUDIO -> Create sampletrack

Result: Crash

Same problem here, but also .MP3-files.
Seems to be an older issue but no solutions?
