not really. its just a function of the order in which the peakfiles
get written to disk. at least, i believe it is. i was running a
massively slowed-down version of ardour yesterday (running under
valgrind), using 16 tracks, which created delays of several seconds
per channel per track, and the order things got done in was not
entirely predictable.

the fix is related to messages that would print out while recording
about an error when reading from peakfiles. it was caused by the
peakfile building thread modifying the data structure we used to
access the file in the middle of the GUI reading from the file.

>Version was whatever the Planet is providing. New, but not CVS.

yes, and a massive memory hog using 4x more memory than it should :)

You can't just switch them all to use JACK transport?
