Like I wrote, it is still buggy.
It is a design problem really. The idea is to replace the original region with 
a "mixed" version. But if the plugins make it stereo, it won't fit in a mono 
track. So what to do?
Ideally you would get a popup with something like the following message and 
"the bounce you are creating has more (less) channels than the track it is in
 do you want to:
 a)mix them together
 b)use only channels x-z
 c)don't add the bounce to this track, but add it to the region list

I very much doubt that I will get around to implementing this for ardour-V1.0
But I will try to make it work like one of the options a) or c).

Which one would make the most sense as a default?
Note that you can get any of the other options by making a range selection and 
doing an "export range" with appriopate output selection and then importing.
