hi andreas,

thanks for your detailed reply.

i'm using 2.8.12, which gives me example.cue and example.wav, no .bin.

hm - let me see if i've got you right. i've got my sessions start 
marker, and my track one cd marker set at 00:00, *but* the first audio 
track actually starts at 03:00. you think this could be causing a problem?

ok - checked, that's all ok.

i have a hunch though that it *is* something about the cd-text that 
toast doesn't like. when toast generates its own bin/cue's, it generates 
a separate cd-text file (a .cdt), whereas ardour is integrating the 
cd-text into the .cue file. could that be something?

i will send you the offending .cue offlist. thanks again for your help!
