You folks should try out the 'p' and 'e' keyboard shortcuts. 
Pressing (or holding) them will position the playhead and edit
cursor wherever the mouse cursor is.  Very fast, very handy...
this kind of key-mouse use was inspired by ProTux, and there will
likely be more on the way.

If it doesn't work, you might have an old ~/.ardour/ardour.rc
in the way.  If you move it out of the way, ardour will recreate
a fresh one from the systemwide defaults.  Of course, you'll lose
some of your preferences... but you can fix that later.
