I see that Jesse has verified the buglet's existence. thanks Jesse.

One other thought I had last evening was that in the case of you
needing to to have pretty distinct panning of different mono tracks
you could do one of two following ideas:

1) Create 3 mono input/stereo output buses. Pan these buses left,
right and center. Route your mono track to the one you want, or route
it to two of them and set send levels to get the appropriate spacial

2) Certainly you could preprocess the mono audio data into stereo,
when use a stereo track which doesn't have this problem.

I think there are ways to get a good mix using data recorded as mono,
but clearly it would be nice to fix this one of these days and make it
