You aren't imagining things. I have the same problem.

The time to failure seems to vary by the size of the recording. Larger 
recording files fail earlier in the recording (like 13 minutes in). I 
suspect that there is a file size boundary like 1, 2 or 4 GB around that 
time. I have better luck with smaller recordings.
