I tried a few other methods of setting the active takes, and none of them seem to update the reconciliation mode correctly.

Ok cool. I got it.

I'm pretty sure a number of the 'bugs' I'm seeing are related to the issue I posted above. I'll refrain from posting more until the next build.

The reconciliation mode works nicely whether 'Show all takes in lanes (when room)' option is turned on.

When 'Show all takes in lanes (when room)' is turned off, switching takes is not consistent. Which takes are selected while cycling is different depending on the take lane display. I know this is an old bug (reported in that silly thread I started), but it's a fairly stark contrast to how the smart reconciliation mode works (i.e. correctly) now.

It seemingly would correct issues 2, 5, 9 and 15 in https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=210747

My apologies if this falls into the "not part of this release" realm, but it does seem related in my brain.

I appreciate your time working on this. The new mode looks like it will be fantastic.
