right, i wasn't seeing them either. but with different thread systems
(NPTL), and/or race conditions, anything was possible. this fix
involved significantly reimplementing how various threads got started,
communicated with, and shutdown. we no longer use pthread_cancel() for
anything except the (known-to-be-doing-nothing) "signal" thread.

i don't like doing this level of redesign at this stage of the game,
but what was there was just clearly wrong. my fault, of course.

it tries to move back to wherever it was at the start of export. i may
have to tweak that, since i may get the position "too late".

continuing to look into this.

>What is a "silent" export?

where export works fine but the file is silent. this was happening
with sync-to-jack because JACK was telling ardour that the transport
system was stopped, so export ran without generating any audio :)

>OT issue:
>Merging differences between 1.6 and 1.7 into pt_BR.po

the .po files are always problematic. when in doubt, remove them (all)
and update again.

oh and ron, i expect to get MTC slaving working 100% by weeks end. i
will be at the studio on thursday and friday. i consider this the most
important major issue right now. the studio has a RADAR system now
too ... :) or :( ...

will we see you on IRC again anytime
