Summary0008056: Moving regions in ripple mode causes significant dropout in left channel
DescriptionWhen dragging regions whilst transport is rolling in ripple mode, the left channel drops out for up to several seconds.
Steps To Reproduce1. Have a track with multiple regions
2. Set ripple edit mode
3. Roll transport
4. Drag any region on the track, either before or after the playhead, or the playing region.
Additional InformationThe dropout duration seems to be proportional to the number of regions in the track. For large projects this quickly becomes unusable. Note the effect happens even if transport is stopped at the time of the drag, but started immediately after.

My guess is that the new region positions are calculated for all the right-channel regions before the left-channel regions are considered. Perhaps there is a way to put the regions under the playhead at the front of the queue.

Arguably it would be better to pause playback until ready.

Ardour6.0.pre1.170 (built using 6.0-rc1-95-g6c9b03e2a3 and GCC version 9.3.1 20200408 (Red Hat 9.3.1-2))
