Yeah well they don't in all cases. And surely it would be simple to add a
test, say 30 seconds after a recording starts, that finds if any data has
been written and do something sensible if it hasn't. In an ideal world,
passing bug reports upstream would result in fixes. In the real world
developers work around upstream bugs.

Sorry this may appear grumpy, and I haven't exactly contributed any
patches, but it had to be said!
