It appears to work properly after changing those settings as per your recommendations. I imported a stereo mp3, split the stereo track, selected the right channel and applied some exaggerated compression to it. Upon playback, the right channel was noticeably louder than the left, and of course differently colored by the compression..
One question though: regarding the select audio check box

under tracks behaviors, does unchecking it mean that no audio will be selected when I haven't selected a region? I often do things to entire files without selecting audio because it is presumed that the entire file will be selected unless I specify otherwise.
