Things to consider if it happened right after a resume:
 - Is the filesystem the recording should be happening on dismounted
   on suspension and remounted again on resume. This can be set for
   especially network filesystems.
 - What nic do you have. Especially Realtec can get unstable. I then
   see syslog entries about promiscuous mode. I have never really
   investigated it, I just replaced with another brand.

Tot mails,
