Hi Jesse

yes, the fact that it behaves differently opening the same file is very

the project file and support files (except wavs) are at...

the project file in question is JS-Live_CD.ardour -- there are some 
other copies of the file as well.

I am running the latest stable version of ardour, 99.2, which I built 
from source on my SuSE Linux 9.3 machine. I typically make sure I also

Thanks for taking the time to take a look - if there is anything I can 
do to assist let me know. Ardour is a wonderful piece of software and it 
has been doing me right for some time now!
