Indeed that has been fixed.

But what would be the difference with just recording the signals you
want to export on a new track ? In particular if you could request any
track to use a multichannel file format ? The latter seems to be the
thing to ask for.

There are two other things I'd like to see in A3:

- recording / playing external automation data (not related to 
  internal or plugin GUI controls),

- An editing mode that allows the equivalent if 3p or 4p editing.
