I'm seeing a lot of anomalies in the Voice Tracker dialog.  With a test log 
consisting of two events with a SEGUE transition, the 'No Fade' box unchecked 
and no track markers, here's what I'm seeing:

1) The righthand-most rubber band handle won't move; however, when attempting 
to move it, the meter levels change as if the moving is being registered 
somewhere.  After moving the start-of-fade handle, the righthand-most handle 
then suddenly jumps to the correct position.

2) Right-clicking on one of the waveform panes causes red Start/Stop markers 
to appear at the point of the click.

3) After using the right-click menu to remove the segue fade, there is no way 
to restore it (other than by abandoning the entire edit).  The menu item 
should change to 'Add Segue Fade', thus allowing the user to toggle between 
the two states.

4) Segfaults.  Happened once during testing, have not been able to reproduce 
as yet.

5) After changing the transition to 'No Fade' and then saving, the 'SEGUE' 
color changes to blue to reflect the custom transition (as expected), but 
when loaded back into the tracker, the 'Do Over' button is disabled, thus 
giving no way to restore the transition to its pristine state.  (Upon further 
testing, it appears that this is broken for *any* transition parameter 
changes made).

So all-in-all, I'm afraid this is looking like it's not quite ready for prime 
time as yet.  :(
