Bug - Conditionally False Indication of Song Part Transition

Summary of issue: The indication of when a song part transition will occur is not working properly. Currently, the blinking red outer circle always appears next to the longest track. This can be a false indication if tracks are muted. Once a transition is committed to, the blinking red outer circle needs to always correspond to the longest “unmuted” track instead of the longest track.

Description/background: While working in 6x6 mode (5.0.0) in song part 1 with multiple tracks playing back (none are muted) and with “Transition at End Of Loop” enabled, when a song part transition is pending, the outer circle with the longest track will blink red to signify it is the longest track and the song part transition will occur at the end of this track. This is working well and as expected.
Then, if the longest track from above is muted, the song part transition will no longer occur at the end of this longest track, but will occur at the end of the longest track that is not muted. Then, as more tracks are muted, the point where the song part transition occurs keeps changing. The transition always occurs at the end of the longest unmuted track. This is a great feature. This is also working very well and is working as desired and expected.

The issue: What is not working properly is the location of the blinking red outer circle. The blinking red outer circle always appears next to the longest track regardless of its muted\unmuted state. When the longest track is muted, this is a false indication that the song part transition will occur at the end of this track. The song transition no longer occurs at the end of this track, but will now occur at the end on the longest “unmuted” track.

Proposed solution: Modify the operation of the blinking red outer circle to be able to always appear next to the track that is in control of transition timing. The location of the blinking red outer circle should be dynamic and be able to change to always appear next to the longest unmuted track and not unconditionally anchored to the longest track.
