I appreciate very much that you're looking into this. 

Since it seems to be able to save such settings, and re-load them from the file (all in the new level), I'm wondering if it's a problem in loading a sequence from an older-level file format, or perhaps the information is saved (now) at a later point in the file, so it gets acted-upon after the channels have been initialized (rather than before that happens). 

I was pleased to see that in the new level going out with Ubuntu 12.10, that there were demo-pieces that I had contributed (and contributed-to).  That was a good feeling for me. 

Thanks again for all the work you have done for us over the years (in creating and maintaining Rosegarden).

I copied your message text over and opened bug #1364.

This issue sounds tantalizingly familiar, but I can't quite read the 
hint this is trying to show me.
