Overall movement and dragging of regions just feels smoother. But as  
I said,
This session is nowhere near the complexity of the others. They tend to
navigate slower as the number of regions gets larger.

I don't really care about the looks of 0.99.3, as long as it works  
and is stable
I'm fine. But crappy fonts don't really work. Oh well.

Heh, for some strange reason spliiting at the mousepointer didn't work
so I had to move the edit pointer, split, move, etc. Now it's point &  
press and
then move the small piece of kick. But also the moving/scrolling/etc  
feels faster for some strange reason. I'm not sure if that's  
"something you
did" or a sideeffect of using GTK2?

Oh by the way, are this kind of bugreports helpful? I mean my other mail
of course.

The piece in this case is grind core/death metal, with lots of  
blastbeats with
double bass. This particular drummer is not as tight as he should be,  
I'm just happy he's not *my* drummer, saves me a lot of time when
recording my own band, no correction needed :)---

When the project of my own band is finished, I'll post it here, just  
in case
someone's interested in Old School Death Metal...
