Hmm, only the first issue seems to be corrected. Also, the ID3 tags suddenly look like gibberish.

Sorry, in creating the mp3 file my screwed-up locales made a mess. I reconfigured them and, hopefully, it is fixed now.

The Checker program fails this recording because of background noise, but this is very strange. I didn't hear excessive background noise while listening to it in general, and in particular during the 5 seconds of silence at the end, which Checker uses to measure noise. Subjectively, I don't think there's any additional noise cleaning needed here.

I have found that if the background noise is not really heard, or even annoying if I can hear it, then I don't worry about it. Sometimes it's because the background noise goes above a certain threshold, or it there is some background vibration that Checker is "hearing." For me, when it is much windier outside, my mic picks it up but I can't hear it.
