I see. This would happend on back to back recordings on a slave
if the slave clock was not in sync with the master. Hadn't heard
of this being due to the encoder stopping late. As this happened,
was the status of the second show "B" or "L"? Also, is there any
chance that you have the backend logs for both the mastter and
slave from one minute before to one after the event?
