I think it's a DSP problem when the microphone is enabled.  When writing
some audio programs using GStreamer the DSP will eventually start
sending back error codes, stop working, and eventually cause the whole
n770 to reboot.  I had to do a lot of trial-and-error playing with how
the GStreamer dsmpcmsrc pipelines are built and re-used to cut down the
frequency of the problems.  Never could get it completely reliable
though.  Once the DSP is wedged you have to reboot (if it hasn't
spontaneously rebooted already).
