Summary0005930: Preference "Play Loop is a Transport Mode" doesn't work properly
Descriptionwhen using "play loop is a transport mode" it is possible that audio bits of the loop range appear/can be heard outside of the range.
Additional Informationhow to reproduce:

-create new session, add 1 track, add one region
-set ardour sync to internal
-set preference "play loop is a transport mode"
-define loop range on the region, set loop active
-roll (inside loop, loop is playing)
-set loop inactive while rolling ("l")
 -playhead drives out of loop range
 -playhead drives beyond region end (-> no more audio to play / silent)
-set loop active again while still rolling ("l")
-> audio that corresponds to the loop range is played again
-> at that time playhead is *not* in loop range and *not* on any region

this basically breaks the main idea of loop as a mode since it's not possible atm to switch loop active/inactive while rolling (without having the described effect)

this only happens when seamless loop is enabled

I can confirm the strange behavior you describe. This mode is only on the cairocanvas branch though right? perhaps it is work in progress.

timbyr, thanks for confirming.
correct, that's in cairocanvas branch. it ought to be the new "master" isn't it?
