Yes. And the real bummer? It's on PURPOSE! The Audacity "prime directive," if you will, is to force "nondestructive editing." Which means for all of us hands who cut our teeth way back on Cool Edit Caveman, it's a never-ending frustration.

    It doesn't seem like such a big deal, but when the vast majority
    of the work you do is recording and editing and saving simple WAV
    files, the extra steps add up to a lot of wasted time and hassle.
