We're definitely aware of the annoyance of tracks going back to mono
after you save and load them, and will be releasing a new version that
fixes this ASAP.
As for the crashes, I've seen it happen but I have a very hard time
reproducing it. I promise I'll keep trying, but if you ever happen
to run across a repeatable way to make it crash every time, please
don't hesitate to let me know!
Your last problem (having to click twice on buttons) does not happen
at all on my system, but one other user has reported it. By any
chance do you have any interesting Extensions installed which might
be causing a conflict?
Thanks very much for your feedback.
