O.K., now me too!

I just downloaded Ardour-5.8 and opened the test-session created with
Ardour-5.5. There is a calf-reverb inserted pre-fader in a track,
which I cannot access anymore. It is not shown in the mixer strip
anymore and I cannot recall its GUI, but it *is* inserted and works,
as I can hear! I can also manipulate the automation of the reverb in
the tracks automation bar. When I try to delete all inserts from the
track (I can not select the non-visible reverb itself, but it's the
only insert) nothing happens.

But this only happens with Ardour-5.8! When I reopen the session with
Ardour-5.5 all works as expected: The plugin appears in the
mixer-strip and its GUI as well after a double-click.

So I think it's more an Ardour-bug than a calf-bug and may be related
to the modified version of some libraries the Ardour-builds use: 

BTW: At least Ardour-bug 0007022 seems to be fixed in Ardour-5.8!
So, it would be nice to have this version in Debian nevertheless. Who
really needs plugins ;-)
