Further comment: the response time while playing is actually very
tolerable; a little way from being instant, but as you say, due to the
decoder, we're not going to get much better than that. It is only while
playback is stopped that it is somewhat painful to work with.

One other bug that still remains is the crash on the recording
screen if voice is enabled and user exits without making a recording.
The workaround is to enable prerecording.
This leads me to ask two questions:
* Do the Archos units capable of recording talk on the recording screen
in the recording menu before a recording has been made?
* If not, can the code always do a talk_buffer_steel() on the recording
screen regardless of whether prerecording is set or the record button
has been pressed?
I suspect this would be a hack and wouldn't actually fix the root cause,
but I don't understand the code enough to figure out what's going on.
This comment might also be worth reading:

Sorry for all the questions and bug reports. :)
