5.X git (version in description) 
0007689: Crash loading project settings
I'm using ardour 6 from git (sv 1303), cross compiling it from Arch. The program compiles fine and works fine when a new project is created.

When a previous project is loaded, Ardour crashed at pbd-4.dll, being unable to create tracks. The Ardour pane is visible, and it waits for a bit, while trying to create the tracks, till it crashes.

From Windows event log:

Faulting application name: ardour-6.0.pre0.1303.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5bf92511
Faulting module name: pbd-4.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5bf924fb

In WinDbg, it gives an access violation at:

I could not compile a debug version of Ardour, as it seems that it exceeds the Ordinal number of symbols.
Launch Ardour, load an existing project, starts the audio server, and while the main window opens it then crashes.
Under Arch, almost all the latest libraries are used to build the dependencies. But this seems to be a pbd specific issue.
No tags attached.

If I run the program in wine, I also see this when it crashed:

re "I could not compile a debug version of Ardour, as it seems that it exceeds the Ordinal number of symbols."

Try adding "-Og" or "-Wa,-mbig-obj"
