Default Healing splits in items shouldn't affect items with different volumes

When an item is split, and different volumes are set, healing splits in those items causes the items to be un-split with a common volume, seemingly from the left-most item. I use the 'heal splits' functionality often after editing takes. This behavior can unexpectedly wreck gain adjustments.

Not really a solution but I have wound up always using glue instead.

Glue definitely avoids this issue, but then if I want to extend the original take or adjust the crossfade, I can't, because it's been glued. I should get in the habit of gluing my takes after I'm happy with them though.

Unless I'm reading it wrong, this isn't a bug.

Heal is really just a way to make the item the way it was before splitting - so much so, if you perform "most" any edit, heal won't even work. So if you change volumes, that's not going to remain if it let's you heal it - this is by design and why it's called heal FWIW. If you want to force them together and keep changed item volumes, then glue is the proper method.

If you want to continue to work with advantages you had from splitting, just keep them split and/or group them with the "G" key.

To clarify, this is the behavior I expect. The items with different volumes should stay separate, instead of healing together. I don't expect it to create a new singular item with the two different volumes.
