Does the presence of the 'pipe' character before "sox" mean that audio
was being generated by a previous command?

If so, although you may think you terminated the recording after a
certain time, maybe that program still sent data to sox?  Or maybe
sent data before you though you started the recording?

In your "too long" wave file, does it start with 1h 6m of something
else, or end with 1h 6m of something else?  Or what?
