Kudos! was Re: Long term recording tests...

I just stopped a AJBR unit that has been recording now for almost 9
days. That 9 days of continuous recording! Amazing. Awesome job, Rockbox
team! That's some stable software.

I've posted a "Panic* rec upd: -6 during split time recording" to the
tracker system along with a simple patch to mpeg.c that adds a
if(!global_settings.rec_timesplit) in front of the VBR header creation
code. This seems to clear up the bug, with the loss of record-time VBR
header creation.

I've gone through and listened to the beginning and ending few minutes of
each file for all of the files in the 9 day recordings above. All of the
files are there (each day has 12 two hour recordings) and they all have a
length that looks about right. Of course, there's no VBR header but

Linus, are there any tests you'd like me to run on these files?
