OK, that does seem to explain some of my issues. It does not explain my 3
minute recording window, as that happens even with no plug-ins. However, the
fact that I am running on only 320M RAM may have something to do with that.

I see that the ardour site has a lot more information on it than the last time
I looked, so there is plenty of material and potential clues to come.

Thanks for all the pointers so far. It has really eased my sense of
frustration. :)
