This could happen if your machine is marginally too slow. Then in sonogram mode, the display will get behind, and memory will start to fill up with the unprocessed sound. We should probably put in a feature that dumps incoming data if it gets behind more than a couple of seconds. Also we might be able to tighten up the display code for the sonogram a bit, but TANSTAAFL.
