I have the same problem (Manjaro 21.0, 64 bit, Audacity 2.4.1): Recording stops at any time (mostly within 8 minutes) when "software playthrough" is enabled.
Until now I found no solution except using 'ocenaudio' - here is the monitoring of the input signal full functional.

"Sound activated recording" is disabled by default. Might you have inadvertently enabled it instead?

Windows guy here. This thread looks similar and provides a possible solution: Can only record one track

Hmm... also, I wonder if a sample rate mismatch could cause this problem...
