Using the CVS snapshot from last Friday night, I noticed a similar problem.  
It seemed to me like when I was just monitoring (not recording), that Ardour 
was giving me two streams of the input channel, making it seem really loud.  
There also seemed to be a very slight delay between the two streams I was 
hearing, which is why I think it was two streams being played rather than it 
was just louder.  Yet when I was recording, it was much quieter through the 
monitor, like the delayed stream disappeared.  Or maybe the undelayed stream 
disappeared.  The actual recording seemed fine.  I was using software 
monitoring at the time.

One other thing I noticed that may be important.  Previous to trying this 
version, I only heard input channels when I had their record status enabled.  
But now I hear all input channels, all the time, regardless of their record 
enable state!
