Re: M-9 looper issues

I have also been having quite rare problems with the M-9 looper, although 
mine are not related to the use of expression pedals.  Very occasionally, 
I find that the most recent overdub sounds EXTREMELY distorted, as though 
being played through a ring modulator.  The older layers in the loop are 
unaffected.  This tends to occur more often when using longish loops (20 
secs +), and especially after heavy use of the reverse button while in 
overdub.  However, it has also occurred at least once using a loop of only 
a few seconds, when I only had 2 or 3 quiet layers running with no FX (ie, 
no chance of any volume overloading).  Line 6's answer was to reinstall 
the firmware (v 2.01), which I did a few days ago.  This initially seemed 
to solve the problem, but I just had a recurrence.  Line 6 have not yet 
responded to my latest report of this.

I'd be keen to hear of any other similar tales of woe regarding the M9
