S and P keys not working anymore ... bug or feature (some yet unknown editing mode?)
since some time, an Ardour install I do not visit too often has started ignoring the S and P keys for splitting regions and positioning the cursor. Especially the latter makes it rather hard do do anything at all in Ardour (only found the workaround to create position markers and then use the context menu).
Is this a bug or acutally some mode of operation that has been activated accidentally (that's how I discovered lock edit mode)?
This happened on Ardour 2.8.11, continues after updating to 2.8.12 (with accompanying jack update). It even persistet after deleting ~/.ardour2 .. but perhaps the settings are in gconf or such? Well, did anyone experience that before?
If not, I guess I found a rather serious UI bug. I hope that's not the case.
PS: I also managed to multiply a region (add many copies of it to the track) in a project while frantically hitting S and P in frustration. That's one hint to me that this might be just another mode of operation...
