this means nothing more than that ardour is reading peakfiles (or
audio data, depending on the zoom level) to get ready to draw
waveforms. with a huge session that is either extremely zoomed in or
extremely zoomed out, this can be slow.

console output is rarely useful. however, with ardour3 there is a
fairly long list of things that can be debugged via the -D flags (-D
list shows them all), but its not exhaustive.
