I think this happens if there was a RECORDING_LIST_CHANGE
while you were watching. The requests and responses get
out of sync. I'm looking at one that just happened to me.
There is a "DELETE_RECORDING" whose response should be "OK"
but it read 31 bytes. Next, there is a "QUERY_RECORDINGS Play"
which, in this case should be 6808 but it read  2bytes ("OK"?)
then another 6808

I've also seen this kind of thing on the Delete Recordings
page where the "QUERY_RECORDINGS Delete" and QUERY_FREESPACE
responses came back in reverse order :-(.
