I had some problem with bad recordings when I was running cpufreq with the
ondemand cpufreq/scaling_governor. It eventually went away when I forced
the CPU to run at full speed. I didn't notice any errors on dmesg, just
lots of uncorrectable errors, so this might not be your problem.

This isn't going to be much help if you're not running cpufreq tho'...
