Summary0001437: MMC/Parameter port selection does not persist
DescriptionSelection of MIDI port for MMC/parameter control does not persist across sessions.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open session
2. Option Editor (MIDI): redirect MMC and parameter control to 'seq' port.
3. Save/Quit
4. Reopen session

MMC/parameter control has reverted to the 'control' port.

Even when manually set as desired, parameter feedback still goes to the 'control' port rather than the 'seq' port.

Options -> Control Surfaces -> Controls -> Feedback also refuses to persist.

Oh - and Options->Send MMC doesn't persist either.

this seems to work OK with current SVN code. please confirm (if necessary, after beta12 is released)

[Odd I can see from the build log that SVN "Updated to revision 1404."]

I'm still seeing the same behaviour, even when I close A2 cleanly.

Ok - so we now have a session that has the settings I wanted. Now I run A2, and the settings have not stuck. Quit A2 and...

Very similar behaviour - except I've lost MIDI parameter feedback entirely.

Routing of MMC/param-control (options editor->midi) still does not persist. Selection of 'generic midi' is now persistent. Selection of feedback=enabled still does not persist. Selection of "use MMC" is now persistent.

No amount of turning things off/on (various combinations) yields parameter feedback. I have tried deleting my .ardour2 directory.
