Kdenlive WAV audio track muted after cutting

I was editing a small video clip and had to cut a WAV file I put in an audio track. Right after cutting off and removing its beginning with “Split at Playhead”, it became completely silent – both in the preview and in a rendered clip. In addition to that, it behaved weirdly when cutting off its end, playing a different portion of the file than the one where I cut. The solution was to convert the audio file into an mp3 file with ffmpeg, which worked flawlessly.
