I am disturbed by this report because I strongly believed that I had
found the bug and fixed it several revisions prior to the one you are
using. However, like all bugs, I need a recipe to reproduce it before I
can do anything about it.

Ardour to not use hard-links when doing embedding. Or perhaps you mean
"embedded" in the sense of "audio files created by ardour" ? Please

Agreed, please file it in mantis, otherwise it will get lost.
