 It looks like m_SMpending is set and StartRecording() will consequently
 block forever waiting for the signal quality to improve. This needs to be
 fixed, we can't have a poor signal on one recorder prevent all other
 recorders and the fronteds from working.. When StartRecording() blocks it
 prevents the scheduler from running and prevents all backend calls that
 require a scheduler lock from completing...
