Note entry duration not respected (0.9.6 regression)

• Aug 17, 2009 - 06:30
S2 - Critical
  1. Create new score in 4/4 time
  2. Press "N" to begin note entry
  3. Choose a dotted half duration from the note input toolbar
  4. Add a dotted half to the first beat of measure 1
  5. Add a dotted half to the fourth beat of measure 1 via mouse input

Expected behavior: The dotted half note added to beat four should turn into a quarter-note tied to a half-note in measure 2

Actual behavior: A quarter note is added to beat four but the remainder of the note duration is ignored. If you use note entry via keyboard in step 5 you actually get a crash.

Similar problems: Try adding dotted quarter notes to a measure. Sometimes you get the full duration other times you get quarter notes without the dots.

In step five above the correct durations are added in r.2025. However the quarter note should be tied to the half note.
