ok, well, it's just happened again, first time today, and i can confirm 
that the correct tool (grab) and edit point (mouse) are selected and i 
haven't inadvertently changed them somewhere along the line. i can also 
confirm that the s-key split doesn't work for any other choice of edit 
point either. one observation i can now make is that my cursor has 
changed, from the pointing hand with a line underneath it (that is usual 
when 'mouse' is selected as edit point) to just the pointing hand (as if 
a different edit point were selected).

quitting ardour and relaunching the project restores normal behaviour 
with no other adjustment of settings.
