see my response to myself in the finer automation control thread -- yes,  
height is the key.

i'm making ardour fly on a laptop too -- it's really getting to feel very  
workable. i'm using the ion3 window manager, which works primarily in a  
tiled workspace model. windows are easily switchable, resizable and can be  
toggled in and out of fullscreen, all with keyboard commands, so it's  
quick and easy to flip between ardour's different windows.
