That's just what I did, Steve, back to v1.02. We have a similar workflow ... PITA, yeah, but got the job done. I haven't had my unit very long, and have not had any lockups. For me, any really serious editing is better done in a DAW (I'm cheap, and Reaper does the trick for me). I suppose there are times when 24/48 is important, but for the vast majority of casual MTR users (like me) 16/44.1 CD quality is just fine. Hell, most of what we record is ripped by the end listener to low quality compressed format to be played on an iPod through cheap ear buds! I can wait for the corrected firmware release. Having been a programmer I'll bet some coder is gonna do a headslap Monday morning and do a five minute fix, and some QA guy is gonna have his butt chewed.
