[ardour-users] Sends on Mono tracks

I am currently running beta30.
This isn't really a big deal, but it's still kind of funny. Here's my situation...  I use sends to apply reverb.  Each track that I want reverb on I'll create a send that directs the signal to bus track.  I apply the revereb plugin to this bus track and bring the dry volume all the way down and the wet to unity.  This way I can control the level of reverb per track via the faders on the sends, or as a whole with the fader on the reverb bus.  I am using pre fader sends by the way.
Since I essentially am using one reverb plungin instance for all my tracks to share, a problem arises.  The bus has to be stereo becuase there are stereo tracks in my sessions, and when you pan a mono track away from center a stereo image is created.  So what I do for mono tracks is create a send with two outputs to direct to my reverb bus.  After I create the send, the panning control for my mono track changes.  Instead of having the one control I now two (Like on a stereo track).  And the pan setting I had before is now lost.  The one control is hard left and the other hard right.  When I remove the send it goes back to normal.
I know that was a long explanation of something simple.  Sorry.  I thought about trying to use a post fader send instead to see what happens, but unfortunately I'm at work right now until midnight and won't be able to try until then.  Any ideas on this one?
