looks like i spoke too soon - in latest git, there is quite some 
funkiness going on with midi bindings - i've even seen crashes, which 
hasn't happened in a while. however, it seems like ardour3 is 
fundamentally unhappy with openSUSE tumbleweed (eating cpu like mad), so 
it may be a distro issue rather than an ardour problem for me...
