I saw something a bit similar yesterday. But let me ask first, how
non-functional? Did it pass the sound through it unaltered, or did it
mute the track?

Yesterday I started gating a snare while tracking some guitars. I don't
recall did I add the gate when the transport was rolling, but I didn't
get the gate to "gate" the snare at all. But after I restarted the
transport, it started working right.

Can you confirm that we are seeing the same sort of behavior?
