Warning message appears on reading in short WAV file
(attached) generated by Gnome sound recorder 2.10.2 in
'voice' mode:

libaudiofile reports (name of file) contains 1073741802
sample frames yet the file is most likely not large
enough to contain that many samples. Loading what can
be loaded.

Click OK. Application returns error window.

Error reading audio data from (file name)
-- file missing data
-- read 64512 frames, should be 0
--keeping waht was read

Click OK and the application hangs.
<Ctrl C> and restart application. Detects the temporary
file from the crash and loads it fine but appears to
show a file of hours in length rather than the 3
seconds recorded. The file will play now but hangs if
you try and edit it.

Not clear where the problem is (Sound Recorder or
ReZound), but other Gnome/KDE tools read the Sound
Recorder file OK and report the correct length (Eg
Xmms,xsox)

    I'm unable to reproduce this with a recent version of gnome and audiofile
