It might be an overflow problem in the math calculating the song length.

If anyone can make one of those songs available for me to download, I could
have a go at checking this out.

This could easily be worked on using the simulator by anyone who has a song
that causes this sympthom.

It works on mine. Please tell us the exact sequence of what you do when it
doesn't work.

We do tend to fix bugs. This is intended to be fixed too. When? When someone
finds the bug and commits/submits the fix. I believe this particular bug was
already addressed in Hardeep's patch he posted this friday.

Without promising anything, we've talked about a 1.3 release "soon". Perhaps
already this week.

We've been talking about having a go at the fat32 file writing after the 1.3
release. If that means recording in 1.4? Well, only if we get someone on the
recording code as well.
