the only really definitive way to refer to a LADSPA plugin is via its
numerical ID. at least that used to be the idea.
ardour should probably print the name and the numerical ID to avoid
this kind of confusion.

if you browse the session file and search for 1123 you'll likely get
an indication of the plugin name.
