may I say... WOW!

It compiled, installed and worked very well for an Alpha release. It
looks nice and I like what I saw so far.

I opened an old session of a live Deerhoof show that has been vexing
me and i was able to get a final mix without any crashes or xruns. It
connected right up with the JAMin ins/outs too... I didn't have to
manually reset them this time.

On export, I still get a xrun when the export completes... it never
effects the exports, and this might be JACK or my computer specific...
it doesn't effect usage, so I ignore it. Also, I still get 00:00:27 in
the TOC on some of the tracks even though they are set right in the
range settings... but I edit them back to 00:00:00 and the cd burns

It kept going into play mode too... I open the export diolouge... it
starts playing... i stop it... hit export, it exports and then when
the export completed it started playing the session back from the
beginning... ghosts in the machine I guess!

The other minor minor personal issue I have is that I can not read
some of the buttons at all... grey background with grey type etc... I
tried changing my themes in Gnome, but that didn't help so I turned to
the ardour2.ui.rc file and that worked better... but I will have to
play around with it more to get something I am comfortable with. I
will post more when I have time to play around with it. I have to
first go through the file more to figure out what is what.

I know this wasn't real specific debugging info, but I wanted to share
a general success experience of the compile on a FC4/PlanetCCRMA
machine :)

Thanx again for all your efforts.
