Hi Paul, I just noticed something puzzling in one of Patrick's earlier

I've never had a reason to delve into any OSC settings but just for the 
hell of it, I also went to Edit->Preferences->Control Surfaces.  In my 
case I see 3 options listed:-  Generic Midi, Mackie and OSC.  Underneath 
the list there's some text saying "Double-click on a name to edit 
settings for an enabled protocol".  In the case of Generic Midi or 
Mackie, double-clicking will bring up a Settings window.  But if I 
enable OSC and then double-click, nothing happens (although Ardour 
subsequently crashes).  I know it's not relevant to Patrick's query but 
presumably, the OSC option should also be bringing up a Settings window?
