LIkely you're hitting the delay added intentionally to reduce the
number of bug reports. The scheduler takes between 15 and 30 seconds
on my core2duo box. When you click don't record, we actually sleep a
bit as if we return before the scheduler finishes running, your button
press doesn't look like it did anything. That's not a good thing.

The slow over-haul is heading in that direction (see current video module).

Patches are always welcome.
