Oups !
Forget the end of the tip, was too much inside it excuse me ;-)

So, it goes like this (like the rest it is HANDMADE, but can't find 
anything else ATM,
and 1 more time any other idea is really welcome, Folks) :

-when have finished the track edit, set edit point on playhead
-create a new similar track
-set playhead at the very beginning of 1st sound (you can use right clic 
"properties" on
it to set at the right time)
-create a marker at the very beginning (Alt+L and create a new marker), 
note its shortcut
-select all regions in the track with clicked mouse movement
-set playhead at beginning with the new marker shortcut
-delete the original track
-cleanup unused sources
-close and start Ardour
-flush wastebasket
-close and start Ardour
-rec time is automagically up

Sorry to forget the most important side, and thanks to "the 2 Brett" to 
remind it !!!
