Cool, if it's not already added (guessing it is) I'll add it.

That is a good point, I'll see if we can make it clearer.

If you just want to record one track the currently selected track is
rec-enabled when you click rec.
I guess there are different "schools" how this should be handled, it works
pretty good for me but I'm open for ideas for how to change it.

This is a very good point and a very weak area of MusE. Working with it a
long time you tend to do the extra mouseclicks (creating a directory and
storing the project in it and then hitting rec) without thinking.
Will look at it right away.
