Summary0005988: Deleting plugin or track causes all midi bindings to be reset
DescriptionI encountered a reproducible case of midi bindings loss, which is I think not the correct behavior: deleting a track or plugin triggers a midi bindings reset (the <Controls> section gets simply deleted from the .ardour file).
This is quite annoying as it takes a while to remap everything. Midi bindings should ideally be considered user data and plugin addition/deletion be handled more gracefully.

Workaround: Pasting back from a backup file the <Controls> section seems to restore all mappings.

It doesn't seem to make any difference if the Control Surface remote ID is assigned by user or not.
Additional InformationSystem: Arch Linux x86_64

Same here, using the same version. Thanks for the workaround, will save me a lot of time :)

It doesn't look like anyone is going to lose sleep over this one after 4+ years, so I'm closing it. Also it doesn't happen anymore as of 5.12
