s/w monitoring means that when ardour thinks you should be hearing
incoming audio, it will attempt to make sure that happens.

yeah, probably a typical state-not-saved buglet.

they display the miserable way that GTK+ v1 shows "radio buttons" where
you can pick one and only one of a set of options. we do not use them
much partly because GTK v1 displays them so badly. this will be very,
very much better with GTK v2.
