So that would be the new (still experimental IMO) unity desktop with it's
ever changing interface that is slowly moving from X to MIR. You don't
have to use studio, but have you tried xubuntu or kubuntu? Both of these
desktops seem to have no problems with audacity. Studio, which I am using
uses XFCE and kubunu, which my wife uses, is KDE. My wife uses audacity as
her "DAW" :) so she has done lots of starts and stops with no problem.
Also look for the next release of audacity in the next month or so.
