It was a Xing header issue. I have committed a fix for this. My first
version of the Xing header generator didn't set the MPEG version and
sample rate correctlty in the Xing header, and it seems like Media
Player reads the sample rate from the Xing header (something I think is
quite naive, but anyway).

You should be able to repair your already recorded files by running
"Update VBR file" on them. Do make a copy of them first, in case I have
introduced another undocumented feature...

Regarding MP3Ext, maybe it doesn't like that I generate a completely
empty ID3V2 tag...?
