Summary0007780: .cue file export: INDEX positions are wrong when using pre-gaps (where track START is > 0:00:00)
DescriptionCurrently, the INDEX position written in .cue files are relative to the track begin. This is wrong and results in shifted CD indices (verified on a real hardware CD player).

According to the cdrdao man page, they should be defined as follows:
              Increments the index number at given position within the track. The first statement will increment from 1 to 2. The
              position is relative to the real track start, not counting an existing pre-gap.
Steps To Reproduce1.) Create a CD .toc file with pre gap and CD track indices
2.) burn the CD using cdrdao
3.) play it with a index aware CD player.
Additional InformationThis bug can be fixed using the following patch, which has been verified using a hardware CD player:

diff --git a/libs/ardour/ b/libs/ardour/
