This is bringing back some memories. I turned off
waveform editing and switched to a virtual desktop
where Ardour wasn't running and that definitely helped
the situation.

I don't see the correlation between disk stream errors
and waveform updates. Any thoughts on that?

I do see alot of diskstream errors when attempting to
FFW/REW. There are times when I can consistenly create
the error with Play engaged and then Rew (MMC) to
00:00:00:00 when the Play head hits the very beginning
the error occurs. Let it roll five seconds and bounce
it back to the top. How could there be a stream error
in that situation? This occurs on IDE and hardware
SCSI raid arrays.

I seldomly see diskstream errors with eight or less
tracks. It happens all the time with 16 tracks.
