Hi again Sampo

I would never have thought that the "Specific tracks" part of the export could
be the problem -- I'm pretty sure I haven't messed around in there (although
this track has been on the go for a couple of months now, so maybe I've
forgotten about it, or maybe it's just a glitch).

Anyway, the left channel of the kick drum and the right channel of another mono
track (that I hadn't noticed a problem with, oops!) were selected. It's
exporting as I type...

..and we have success! I think I was way overthinking the problem -- it just
goes to show that you shouldn't overlook anything, no matter how simple.

Once again, many thanks for your help. :-)
