I now understand. (Thank you for your persistence ;) )

It's due to a recent change in the Nyquist library (the programming language used to create plug-ins such as "Chimes delay").
In the new (current) version of Nyquist, for "effect" plug-ins, the output length cannot be longer than the selection.

This change was intended by the creator of the Nyquist library, so there may be no way to achieve the old behaviour.

To create a longer output than the input track, the selection needs to be extended beyond the end of the input track. For example:

Trackpanel000.png
Trackpanel000.png (13.5 KiB) Viewed 125 times

The effect can then generate sound into the whole of the selection.

I've spoken with Professor Dannenberg (the creator of the Nyquist programming language) and he said that he'd look into this when he has time. For now, this issue has been logged on the Audacity issue tracker so that it doesn't get forgotten about.
