[Ardour-Dev] input ports bug?

Thank you David and Jonathan for your fast replies.

Indeed, I forgot a previous line: ardour: [INFO]: Ardour will be limited 
to 1024 open files

But... adding the inputs to just an empty session with one track give me 
that error, and as I get closer to that number every added input takes a 
long time (even without the sort patch, although with it takes more) to 
appear, makes me suspect that maybe it is opening more than the needed 

In any case, at the moment I don't need to use 40 inputs, and I could 
increase the limits as you suggested.


Best regards,
