Ok testing with a short audio file and it all seems to be in good 
working order so far. Bit of a stumble as it wouldn't play until I added 
a region. Brought up xjadeo with no problems. I have to say that I am 
really impressed with this work. Very well done!!!

The dialogs are not too complicated. They just take a little learning. 
Now that I have been through the process it all makes perfect sense.

The size and position was retained across multiple screens with xinerama 
running. So I have xjadeo on one screen and ardour on the other.
