If you encounter a recording where the time shown in the progress display is
not correct, the index is most likely wrong. In such a case please do as
- change into the *.rec directory of that recording
- rename the file index to index.old (or whatever you like)
- run the command
(`pwd` will be replaced by the name of the current directory)
- do an
ls -l index*
and compare the size of the old and new index file. If they are the
same, that means that --genindex produces the same index file as did
the original recording, and thus I should be able to reproduce the
here if you send me the first minute of that recording.
It's clear, thank you.
