OK, sorry guys.  Every subsequent name I saved under worked fine??

While I'm bothering you kind folk...Can someone tell me how much I should 
trust the audio meters in Ardour?  Because, even when all individual 
tracks stay under zero, and the master does as well, I still here what 
sounds like clipping at the output.  This seems to be concurrent with 
peaking of the sum of all tracks, rather than an individual one.  Also, my 
preamp has a hard limiter on it at 0, which goes into a delta44..so input 
should be ok, espically since ardour's input meters never go above -3.

So, should I need to keep ardour's master well under "0"?  And when 
mastering with jamin, can I trust those meters? Are there any meters I can 
run through jack which can be trusted?  

Thank you all!
