[Gta04-owner] recording

Hi list,

I was following the log while trying out a "multimedia message", and recording 
some sound. It directed me to voice notes, and against better knowledge, I 
started a recording. 

It seems voice notes tries to activate the wrong profile: 
Cannot open /opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa/recording.state.state

The piece of log below was repeated several times:

Oct 27 22:29:25 neo Qtopia: alsactl returned  "alsactl: load_state:1571: 
Cannot open /opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa/recording.state.state for reading: No such 
file or directory

sigspec] [pid | job]... or
Oct 27 22:29:25 neo Qtopia: kill -l [exitstatus]

I can do something about the symptoms:

root at neo:/opt/qtmoko/etc/im/svgkbd# cd /opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa/
root at neo:/opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa# ls
gsmearpiece.state  gsmearpiecehw.state  gsmheadset.state  gsmspeaker.state  
gta04_initial_alsa.state  headset.state  recording.state  speaker.state
root at neo:/opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa# ln -s recording.state recording.state.state
root at neo:/opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa# ls
gsmearpiece.state  gsmearpiecehw.state  gsmheadset.state  gsmspeaker.state  
gta04_initial_alsa.state  headset.state  recording.state  
recording.state.state  speaker.state

Now I seem to be able to make a voice note via messages/new/multimedia/record: 
* at start there's the peak in green
* after that, instead of a flat line, there's feedback to sounds in the room
* afterwards, the file still is only 44 bytes

I don't think voice notes have the highest priority, but it was enough of an 
improvement to make note of it anyway :-)

Best regards,

Boudewijn
