thanks, james! yes, i've read fantastic things about XFS from video folks,  
too, so i think i'll see how it goes. i'm running a test right now which  
looks very solid. i've re-enabled recording waveform display, but haven't  
got to my previous crash-time yet. interesting, though:  loading up  
sessions is no longer causing xruns.

we'll see.
