Summary0002350: Ardour crashes trying to load a project - cannot recover
DescriptionI was working on a project with three buses containing different reverbs and using post fader sends to to route multiple channels to these buses.

I renamed the sends to make it easy to see where they route to, giving all of the sends to a particular bus the same name (e.g "2 q reflect").

I saved the project and the next time I tried to open it, ardour segfaulted. I cannot recover this project without hacking the project xml and removing the history and all of the snapshots are from before I recorded some important tracks.

If there is any more info needed, please let me know. I will hang onto the bad project file. Also, I'm not sure if this is logged under the right version, if not sorry.

This should be (kind of) fixed now. The problem is the multiple sends with the same name; Ardour now prevents you from creating such sends in the first place, and should give a more informative error message (rather than a segfault) with your broken session.

Can you say whether current Ardour versions are any better for you in this regard?
