Further info. It appears to behave correctly if I open a session with 3 or
more tracks in addition to the master bus. Opening a session with fewer
tracks triggers the behaviour. Removing tracks from a larger session also
triggers it (or sometimes just shows a blank Meterbridge window) as soon as
the track count gets below three.
