fine, you bring clairty:

that how it is
(just that in Loop3, the state of Overdub had no influence during 
Mute, which I find simply wrong now)

and its not even in question

right, but maybe the other way round:
you have a loop frozen (Overdub red)
mute it
press Overdub the loop comes back as it was but immediately fades.

Or (in some later upgrade?):
Overdub continue doing its job without touching Mute. Means that you 
can stay in Mute and decide with Overdub when you want to change it 
while its in silence.
I think it would be more interesting for the DelayMode but in general 
make things more complex and less consistent without changing that

now you confused me: what do you mean by this last sentence?
