FWIW, I had random lock-up issues while recording with Audacity 1.3. I
resorted to arecord for recording, and Audacity for any
post-processing.

arecord is dirt simple to use. The following records in so-called "CD
quality" to a plain WAV file, with a time limit of 45 minutes:

  arecord -f cd -t wav -d 2700 happyfun.wav
