I built 2.1 without issues the same day it was announced.  But,
I only got a chance to try it out tonight.  What a joy it is to
use.  I resurrected some WAV files from a friends recording that
was done with ProTools, roughly lined up the regions.  I did lots
of work with playing various combinations of soloed tracks.

I did find one thing that seemed to cause a lockup.  I tried to
audition a region from the region importer with the "Copy" button
unchecked.  After that one of my CPUs went to 101% and stayed
there until I killed ardour.  No other problems were observed.

Next week I'll get back at very fine alignment of the tracks, a rough 
mix, and then maybe start tracking some drums or electric gtr.

Thanks Paul and all the developers & testers!!!
