[ardour-dev] More on MMC

Yesterday I had a great session recording my son's band. 6 tracks
recording at once, and I used the BCF to mis on the fly, which was a
lot of fun.
As I started into the mixing process, though, I am finding some very
odd things about using the BCF with Ardour. Certain functions seem to
come and go! Most noticable is when the MMC controls for Play, Stop
and Locate 0 stop working. I also seem to lose the mappings for solo
and mute, but rarely lose the fader mappings.
At one point, I was absolutely unable to re-map a button to the solo
for a track. I'd get the "operate controller" message, but despite
repeated presses of the button, I couldn't get it to map. I'd thought
perhaps I'd lost all MIDI functions, but at that point I had MMC control
and could play and stop using the BCF!
As I write this and muck about with the BCF, I just had a panner in
Ardour refuse to bind to a knob. I fiddled with another channel's
panner, and it worked fine. Then I tried to bind the first channel
again, and it took it with no problem!
It's very strange - sometimes the controls work, sometimes they don't.
They'll come and go in the same session at times!
Any ideas, or clues on what I should try to do to debug this?
Also, the "follow playhead" state does not seem to be saved. I have
to turn it on every time I open the session. Minor, but I'm pretty
sure that used to work.
