Create New Lanes On Overlap: what if I don't?

Question

I find the Project/Record Preferences page to be perhaps one of the most confusing things about Cakewalk, and one area where the documentation is not much help to me.

For instance, this choice, when I call up Help, it says "If you have the Expand/collapse Take Lanes button on a track enabled, and you record one clip so that it overlaps another clip, the clips appear in different Take lanes when this option is enabled."

First, it implies that it only works if you have your Take Lanes expanded, which....that would be kinda odd. Is this its true behavior?

Second, okay, fine, I record mostly in Loop mode, so with every iteration, my clips are going to overlap, and I'll want a new take lane. But what if I didn't have this checked? What would happen? Would my clips just pile up on top of each other?

If so, it would be nuts not to have this enabled, the result would be disastrous.

What actually happens?

It's kind of a superfluous option. For the most part, CbB does not allow same-lane overlaps, but there are some bugs that will let it happen, and you'll see more of them if you don' keep that option checked.
