Section Break duration wrongly extends pedal sustain on piano

• Sep 8, 2018 - 21:30

I came across this feature, where a closing chord with pedal sustain in the piano part should terminate after three beats. But in playback the sustain is extended in addition for the entire duration of the Section Break (in this example the section break is exaggerated to 5 seconds).

Anyone care to confirm that this is a fault?

@cadiz1 [edit: wrongly responded to someone else] You're right, but surely that's a workaround rather than a comment as to whether this is a fault or not? I had deliberately changed the section break duration to 5 seconds, just to demonstrate the effect when posting the example score...

My feeling is that a Section Break duration should be silent, like the gap between tracks on a CD. What do you think?

I can confirm, including in a new score created from scratch. If the pedal extends all the way to the end of the measure, playback continues into the break. That's a bug. Feel free to report it formally to the issue tracker; I don't see any similar report there already.
