Some clarifications:

I've installed a direct lead to the battery terminals of the AJBR20's that
I use for long recordings. I removed the batteries, and then use a 5.4V
power supply plugged into the wall to "fool" the Archos into thinking that
it always has charged batteries and that it never needs to charge.

Martin: are you recording to a single large file?

I ask because I've been using the time split feature to make hour long
recordings. The panic error always seem to occur during the time split,
which is another reason I think it must be a bug rather than a power supply

I don't want to give the impression that I can't make long recordings, I
generally get at least 48 hours per go, sometimes quite a bit less,
sometimes as much as 60-70 hours. But Rockbox always seems to panic at some
