Playback skipping first part of recording

I’ve got a FreeBSD system running 6.1-PRERELEASE #2 and Asterisk from the ports collection. I’ve noticed the first little bit of pre-recorded messages get lost when the recordings are played. In a specific example, vm-login.gsm sounds like “edian mail” instead of “Comedian mail” (what’s with that name anyway?). Another example is hello-world.gsm. It sounds like “lo, World” when played via Asterisk. Has anyone else observed this? Is there a fix?

And on a less BSD specific note, are their alternative voicemail applications to Comedian mail? If I’m reading things correctly, it looks like the user interface is hard-coded into the application.
