you are confused, an unfortunately common condition caused by my/our
poor design.

the "Connections" window has nothing directly to do with "making
connections". in 0.99 it was a way to define specific configurations for
input or output (a number of ports, plus what they are connected to). 
it is not necessary to use this in order to use ardour, and in fact,
hardly anybody ever has. its future in 2.0 is unclear at this time.

what actual interactions are you having with the dialog, since it works
perfectly here, from a functional perspective.

btw, sometime post 2.0beta3, the entire paradigm for connecting stuff
together will change to use something close to Reaper's IO matrix.
