[ardour-users] Save Session vs Snapshot?

Some of the tips you gave me recently have helped a bunch! Love the "e" and
"p" for moving the cursors and the pointers to the Wiki manual.
Here's a few more questions if I may:
The Wiki manual states:
\\A snapshot is nothing more than a new session file. It still references
the same audio and \\automation data as the primary session file.
\\Saving a snapshot does not change the status of the current session. It
does not change what \\will happen when you choose SessionSave at a later
time. However, when you open a session \\using a snapshot, choosing
SessionSave will store the current session state to the primary session
\\file, not the snapshot. Snapshots are essentially read-only ways to store
a particular state of a \\session. They are not new sessions.
Ardour (for me) doesn't seem to be working like this.
If I load a saved snapshot, modify it and then do a Session -> Save, it's
the SNAPSHOT that gets overwritten with the new modified version, not the
original session file. Is this a bug or a PEBKAC* ?
If my "Zoom Focus" is set to "Edit Cursor", then the zoom out (-) button
alternates between zooming out correctly and zooming out but also moving to
the start (time=0) of the session. Works great if focus is "Playhead". Do
others see this?
3)In the "Options" window, "Paths/Files" tab, "Native Format" dropdown:
What's the difference between "Broadcast WAVE/floating point" and
"WAVE/floating point" ?
