Deadlock in backend on starting a new recording

I'm setting this as a blocker for now. If it turns out to be rare I will reduce the priority. But I want to investigate this to at least determine if it is a recent regression.

Very little of value is in the backend log:

It looks like m_SMpending is set and StartRecording?() will consequently block forever waiting for the signal quality to improve. This needs to be fixed, we can't have a poor signal on one recorder prevent all other recorders and the fronteds from working.. When StartRecording?() blocks it prevents the scheduler from running and prevents all backend calls that require a scheduler lock from completing...
