Summary0007169: Graphics glitch: Ghost tracks
DescriptionArdour 4.7 - 5.5.72 sometimes displays duplicate ghost tracks on two of my computers. One has Intel and the other nVidia graphics. My desktop is Fluxbox.

Steps To Reproduce- Create a new session
- Create 10 new mono tracks
- Record enable all tracks and record 10 seconds of audio.
- Click on item "Number Of Visible Tracks" on the Edit window and choose 8 tracks from the drop down menu. This maximizes 8 tracks to the display.
- Click on the first audio track to activate it and press f on the keyboard to maximize the selected track.
- Now use the down cursor key on the keyboard to navigate to the last audio track, keep pressing down past the last track.

Result: Ardour shows the last track (Audio 10) and below it seven ghost copies of it. The ghost copies are just empty lanes without any audio regions. Picture of it here:

I'm curious if other people can confirm this or is this bug just connected to my desktop Fluxbox.

If I understand your bug report, I have a similar issue. I have attached a video showing my situation.

I'm running LXDE (Openbox).

@robsco Yes that's the same problem I'm seeing :) Thanks for confirming the issue.
