Gap detection accuracy levels in EAC, how bad is "inaccurate"?

Sorry for starting so many threads...but this one is important.

I've just ripped about 150 CDs of my collection with EAC, and I just realized that my gap detection was set to method B, inaccurate. I've done some searches and found that secure and accurate are about the same, but I couldn't figure out how bad inaccurate is in comparison.

I tried re-reripping a few discs, and noticed no difference in the cuesheets.

So how bad is inaccurate? If there's much risk that my rips are off, I'll probably redo the whole thing...I'm kind of nuts that way (want as close to perfect rips as possible) and I've got lots of time this summer....

What you are comparing are the waveforms of the images, which are independent from the cuesheets / gaps. The gaps are not periods of silence, but simply a sorf of marks, which still may contain audio data. I've got (at least) one CD which is gapless (a DJ mix), but nonetheless has "gaps".

If you take a look at a cuesheet, you'll notice that it has "TRACK" entries, and they have "INDEX" entries. "INDEX 01" is the position where the player jumps to when you choose this track. But these can also be an "INDEX 00" indicating the start of the gap between this track and the one before. This period between "INDEX 00" and "INDEX 01" is the "gap" (the pregap, to be precise), but noone forces the manufacturer of the CD to set the gaps in a way that they contain only silence.
