[ardour-users] Tracks losing inputs (changing to buses) also, "recover from crash"

This is my first post to the list, so first of all I'd like to thank the 
developers for such a polished and useful app.

I've got a bit of a problem, however. I'm using the Debian package of 
version 0.99.3 on 64studio 1.0.

I typically quit ardour by using pkill, which I believe by default sends 
SIGTERM. I mention this because I suspect that my problem might be 
related to this.

Two troublesome things are happening. First, when I load ardour, it 
sometimes shows the "recover from crash" dialog.

Second, and more of an issue, is that sometimes when the session is 
opened, the tracks I have defined seem to revert to busses, in that the 
VU meter dissapears, and the jack audio input ports for them aren't 

In case it matters, when I create the tracks, I don't set the input 
connections within ardour - I just create the inputs, and maybe set the 
input source to Alsa pcm. I use the qjackctl patchybay instead for this, 
as I have other apps to connect, and I find it easier to see all the 
connections in qjackctrl.

I'd welcome any ideas about what could be causing this.
