I've been under the impression that red in that window means that the 
signal has clipped.  But, in my experience, when I see red there, 
it's always at the extreme edges of the signal window.  That's not 
the case in your picture.  But, your picture looks like you've got 
the display set to something other than the default, and I don't know 
exactly how to compare your signal to my own.

I wonder if ardour is "smart enough" to show clipping on a waveform 
when it's occurred at some point in the signal chain prior to getting 
to that window?  Was that waveform derived from some other waveform 
within ardour?

Any other guesses?
