Summary0007763: Adding new tracks / busses disturbs routing
DescriptionWhen new tracks/busses are added to a session, track routing for existing tracks is modified. In particular track input and output settings are modified for existing tracks (haven't checked busses, which may not be effected).

I think what's happening is that if I add new tracks, the default input/output routes are added to the existing tracks. So if I had, say:

input 1 -> track 1 -> master

Then I modify the routing so that:

Input 2 -> track 1 -> submix bus

when I add a new track the routing on track one will be:

Input 1 & Input 2 -> track -> submix bus & master

I strongly suspect that this related to the "automatically connect inputs/outputs" code in Ardour. I don't think it's possible that this can be the actual intended behavior, though, because if somebody has modified the routing after creating tracks, I can't imagine any scenario where they don't want those modifications to be undisturbed while adding additional tracks.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create or open a session
2. Add some tracks, in none exist
3. Modify the default input / output routing
4. Add tracks or busses
Additional InformationI suspect a similar thing happens with aux sends / side channel routing because I feel like I've observed my session routing getting screwed up when doing this sort of thing in the past. I haven't, however, carefully tried to reproduce that behavior, so take this part of my bug report with a grain of salt.
