Thank you for investigation this again. Of course, it has nothing to do
with the current rc, sorry.

I would try to explain what's my thought about layering.

In my work, I have often to record interviews or narrators. The results
are: 123000456
This means, 000 are mistakes.

By editing, I think, most users set a cut after "3". And then, when the
new region, beginning with 000, there layerd under the first region, you
have often nothing more to do, as to move the region in rigth direction
(under region one). That's all!

With the current standard, you must manually move the region on lower
layer, or set a second cut an so on...so you have additionally steps.

For me, I don't know waht's the advantage of later-is-higher. When this
setting can change in preferences globally, it will be fine.

Regards and excuse my bad english...
