I'm pasting an e-mail I previously posted to the forum.  Yes, the error occurs
when I click.  The control surface is fine.

Everything below was previously posted:

I previously posted the message I am REing and received no responses--don't
know if people missed it or if there was simply nothing to say.  I've noticed
one more thing with the nightly CVS tarball downloaded on 01/15/05.  When I
<CTRL>Middle Click on a fader, then use the X to close the fader and
<CTRL>Middle Click on the fader again, ardour promptly dies.  This appears to
always happen.

The problems in the previous post still persist.  Just in case there is
concern that my issues are related to the MCS-3800 I use, I can program the
MCS-3800 to send any midi command for any control.  Let me know if there is
something I should try.

Thanks to all!
