Query about "File did not decrypt properly"

Hi Folks

On two of my machines I recently started recording everything in HD. I get a message most days that says, "File did not decode properly" but when I browse the files in Web-If it does have the 'Dec' symbol against it. I have included an excerpt from the auto.log which seems to indicate that the machine tries and fails and then tries again and succeeds. Am I reading this correctly and the does actually get decrypted?

Failure to decrypt immediately after recording is fairly normal though the reasons why are unclear

Since it normally succeeds when automatically retried a few minutes later displaying a banner message on first failure is excessive and induces unnecessary worry in users - the message should only be generated if the retry also fails.

Fair enough - at the moment it only shows the message if decryption fails and it has been three hours since the recording ended. That obviously isn't good enough to avoid spurious warnings.
