Summary0008143: Playhead sometimes stops, actually reverses a bit, then gyrates at plugin automation points
DescriptionIn a session with an audio track and multiple plugins, the playhead will get to a certain spot (with automation points) and halt. It will actually "boing" back a bit as well, then sort of shimmy in place a bit. It's like the playhead has gotten confused about what it's doing.

Here's a video of it happening:
Steps To ReproduceNot exactly sure, but it seems to happen when there are two plugins (in my case, GxAxisFace and GxSD1) that have *identical* automation points to activate. By "identical", I mean that the automation points from one lane were copy+pasted to the second lane.
Additional InformationDoesn't always happen, even when the automation lanes stay the same. And it *seems* (although not sure) that if you click the playhead elsewhere, play the session, then reset to the beginning and start over, there will be no hangup.

Sorry I can't be more specific. I can provide a sample session of this upon request. (copyrighted material)

Just had this happen again. GxSD1 is present, but GxSunface is not and none of the handful of plugins have duplicate automation points. Very recent ardour 6.0 65

What can I do to get more information about this when it happens again?
