Ah, should have noted exactly what I tested for each Activity. For
Turtle Art (wasn't that Turtle Blocks at some time? still confused) that
was only playback, not recording.

switching to a different Activity. Jukebox OTOH would be a good example
of an Activity that should continue playback even in the background (but
close the device as soon as it's finished playing).
