Hm, i think i've heard about people having issues with corrupted
projects in beta11, that got fixed simply by upgrading to beta17 and
opening the projects in the new version.

In any case, it's the lack of JACK transport that prevents me from using
Ardour and Rosegarden together for any kind of serious work.
The transport has been implemented in Ardour beta16 if i'm not mistaken.
