Summary0001918: Segmentation fault when snd-seq module is not loaded.

Ardour 2.0.5 produces SEGMENTATION FAULT when initializing if snd-seq-midi module is not loaded. I have run it in debug mode using gdb and the back trace shown that the signal was received while in some MIDI initialization function. i will try to get a backtrace, but the issue is very easily reproducible. I complied ardour from source using Debian Testing to AMD64 architecture. Here is the output of ardour -v:

Ardour/GTK 2.0.5
   (built using 2234 and GCC version 4.2.1 (Debian 4.2.1-4))

The output from gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Thanks for the report, gbecker. Can you confirm that the bug is fixed in version 2.1?

This bug appears to be fixed in any recent version of ardour, and it has been years without feedback, so resolving the issue.
