This morning I could not recreate the problem, above.  I kept changing 
the compression type through the "answer record" dialog and then 
recording a sample file.  Eventually I was unable to record a file using
the following settings:

Qualcomm PureVoice
8 kHz
(options set as default PureVoice Full rate)

The file is always truncated after < 1 second.

I have not rebooted my computer since yesterday.  Is it possible that 
my particular hardware (2002 flat-panel iMac 800 mHz) doesn't fully 
support all of the options listed through QT, and the above set in
