This seems to be a known bug.

Workaround that works for me is to open the session from a command line as 
an argument to Ardour, such as:

[user at localhost.localdomain]$ ardour /home/project/project-file.ardour &

this will run open the session with the pans in the position they were in 
last time the session was saved.

Looks like the bug is set to be fixed in beta21 or 22 or whatever the next 
release is.
