Cool! It worked! And it repaired my already recorded

Maybe. Your newest latest now-working version still doesn't
show up as having any tags. Shouldn't all of this stuff:
Bitrate: 0K Time: 00:00
Mode: s Layer: -
Freq: 0 Frames: 0
...shouldn't this stuff be something other than blank?
I mean, even if we don't know the artist, song name and
album info and all that jive, all of these particular
factors should be known at file-save time. Shouldn't
they be filled in properly when the file is saved?
Does the bug report I filed  cover this issue
Anyway, thanks a lot, Linus, for fixing this so quickly.
It really helps me a lot! I'm looking forward to getting
into the code myself a bit. I definitely have an alternate
recording function I'd like to implement. I want to set
up an "always-on sampler" that lets me record something
that "just happened" like the Archos FM Recorder firmware
does for 'pre-saving' songs off the radio. Soon...
