Thanks Doug. Hmmm, what could be wrong I wonder? Anyway I now have a
script that detects when recordings aren't growing and restarts the
backend if it detects it. It's not pretty, or clever, but hopefully
it'll improve the WAF until I can find a proper solution.

Seriously has no-one ever encountered recordings that start OK then
terminate for no apparent reason without the backend detecting it? (
This used to happen rarely on 21, but on 23 it's pretty regular).
