[Ardour-Users] export problem

 I found the culprit: The jack-pulseaudio modules were keeping ardour
from exporting. Getting rid of them solved my export problem.

Is this documented anywhere? In case it isn't I'd recommend to give
some hints about how exporting is implemented in ardour3 and what
precautions should be taken to make it work. For me such behaviour is
less than obvious and I could imagine, I'm not the only one.
