I have fixed up a few more things in the crash recovery system such as
recordings.
Now it won't wait until after the recording completes to log the
action. ie. If Jokosher
crashes while recording, everything recorded up to that point will
still be recovered.

I have put in a message area to prompt for recovery. I would just like to see if
anyone has comments on the message presented to users:
http://laszlopandy.com/files/jokosher-recovery-pane.png

Also it is perfectly fine if the user ignores the dialog and doesn't
click close. Once
they start working on the project and moving events/instruments, etc the message
area will disappear on its own (since we can't recover a project after its been
changed without destroying the users work).

So this feature is ready to be merged.
Any comments?
