We discussed this on the list already. I added the code in
renderer.cpp when profiles.xml still read acodec=libfaac. Then,
someone changed profiles.xml to acodec=aac - maybe because they had
not updated to receive my code. In our discussion, I concluded that
soon aac will be the norm and libfaac a welcome distant memory. What
exactly needs "fixing?" That we need to continue to support both
instead of just aac?

new profiles.xml? You mean you want kdenlive to automatically detect
and load changes made to profiles.xml by another app?

I will test it.

I think this is a Qt issue - most noticeable when you enable the info
panel. Does that sound correct? If you turn off the info panel by
clicking the i button does it scroll as you expect?
