Region handling may have changed fairly recently then. I just built
something called ardour 2.1 Pre (built from 1801). I do not get a list
of regions under my mouse. If I display the region list on the right
then I can click on the individual region names and see the color of
the region in the punch range change color. However I don't see a list
when I right click with my mouse.

I can move whatever region is on the top to the bottom and rotate
through very slowly.

I'll have to investigate how to get what you are running via Gentoo's
pro-audio overlay.

Note that I still see a full blown crash of Ardour when I choose the
Remove option at the bottom of the mouse's right click menu. Ardour go
bye bye....
