I do think you're the guy who can sort this out, if it can be sorted out. I'm aware of the three points you mention above. I think this 'bug' only affects some systems. When it happens, the only thing that usually fixes it is to quit and re-start PT.
I think the fact that I can see the 'stop' button flash momentarily when I press the 'play' button may be a key to this, whatever it is. BTW, the 'play' button flashes, too, as it should.
It is exasperating. The Digi support guys had never heard of it. I ran into a couple of other people who have seen it.
