OK, Thanks. Now, for the record, let me post the outcome of this ticket (dd 2010/08/11) here:
I have verified that there is a bug (1) with the driver in OS 10.4.11 where upon reboot, the driver settings for Input select and MIDI Control parameter settings are lost. After selecting the correct input and re-assigning the MIDI paramters, POD Farm 2 reacted to the same paramters without any additional MIDI learning required. Only the KB37's driver input and MIDI control settings changed, POD Farm 2 is working fine. A bug has been logged for this and we hope to see an update to resolve this issue in the future.
So, to sum that up, its confirmed there is a bug in the MacOS 10.4.11 *driver* which makes it forget issue #1 & #2 above.
( .. so the bug is not in PF2 but in the driver :-) )
I agree, reassigning the settings for #1 and #2 make PF2 respond to midi correctly again, without additional learning required. Additional midi learning however will be 'crippled' until you reassign #2 (as described). Issue #3 has not been addressed in the answer, but obviously that's not related to PF2 either.
So fwiw, you can not use PODFarm2 live on stage using mac OS 10.4.11, as confirmed by line6 above.
reported numerous times and still not fixed:
Midi preferences are not remembered in PF standalone (PF plugin will not be a problem of course since the midihardware is enabled/disabled in your DAW)
