A backport for Lenny is available in the 64 Studio repositories, see:


But that doesn't really solve the problem imo. The problem is solved when Ardour in unstable hit testing and then stable after a while. Now it seems to be stuck in unstable...

Also the backport is an 64studio repo, people expect Lenny backports to be in the Lenny backports...
