Yes, I saw a LOT of those Unknown pid messages.  However, I don't think that
the messages themselves were causing my problem.

With that station, anything I *record* with your patch plays just fine, but
fastforward and rewind do not work.  My other stations are okay.

I can try removing that VERBOSE, but I don't think it will fix the problem.
