That is rather strange, specially because the problem you've solved is
in the converting part, which if thrown an exception would stop the
recording and thus the disc would be blank. Can we arrange a meeting
on IRC so that we can try to debug this? I am not able to reproduce
this bug so I can't really do it by myself. My nickname is
'cogumbreiro' and i'm on irc.freenode.net (on #pida) and on
irc.gnome.org (on #pygtk).

I also have a jabber account: cogumbreiro at gmail.com

That's the expected behaviour. That happens so you don't have to
convert the same file twice (imagine writing multiple copies of the
same album).
