You did not by any chance enable morse decoding?
Do not do that, it is just experimental and of no value now, byt
may cause various problems.

The volume indicator in the baseband graph. If it goes red at the top
and if you have selected to use the "stupid limiting" function
your audio will be distorted in the digital part. Otherwise there
is never audio distortion unless something happens in the audio
card. There may be various volume controls that you set with a mixer 

If the above did not help, run as usual, but press 'F' and 'T'. When the
system hangs, press G - maybe you are allowed to make a screen dump that
can give some information.

In case you select poor parameters that cause excessive cpu load
(there are several ways to do that) there will not be time to do everything
and your system will lock up. Then there should be various warning

One of the silly things is to ask for more memory than you actually 
have. Then execution will be off the hard disk.............
