I am, but... nothing is attached AFAICS...

It can't have been in there very long - any use of a pre or post
send would immediately reveal the problem.

My quick and dirty solution so far (needing a working system fast)
was to comment out the call to apply_declick() and the surrounding
if(), keeping only _gain = dg; The result is no declicking on the
send, but that's better than before :-)

To be clear, it's the meter in the send dialog that goes way up to
100 dB and above when the real level is around 0 dB, not the mixer
strip meters.

T(IA) for the patch !
