You'd normally think so, wouldn't you? Yet using a tilde to make a
path relative to $HOME works for all other apps I've ever used apart
from ecasound. Moreover, upon your suggestion, I tried the same in
interactive mode and I've found out:
- aio-add-input works fine, selects the file as input object and it
shows up correctly in aio-list.
- Chain setup _cannot_ be connected when one of the objects is a
filename with a tilde in its path.
What could this mean? If the tilde was simply expanded to the value of
$HOME such problem couldn't be, right?
