If this using current CVS? If so can you try adjusting the usleep on
line 402 of RingBuffer.cpp up a bit to see if that allows it to
recover? The problem you're seeing is due to the fact that when we open
a new RingBuffer we're not able to read any data from the file, and
never will be allowed to read from that file handle. So we attempt to
read from the file before returning the handle back up the chain.
The recent changes to CVS that start the recorder up ahead of the player
might also help, though I've not looked to deeply into it.
