Summary0004874: Reproducible crash when opening .ardour session

Can provide a tar file of the session (243M gzip). I've attached the relevent portion of system.log
TagsNo tags attached.

Actually, upon further testing, the restored file caused an Ardour crash twice, then opened on the 3rd attempt. When it opened it caused 2 other applications to crash:

MOTU Audio Setup (I'm using the 828mkII)
iChat crashed with a message about Jack

Could we get the .ardour file from the session as a starting point?

I've uploaded the Ardour file. This is the older version that I was restoring from but even this doesn't seem to open for me now. When I attempt to open the file I get a window called 'Session Control' with an 'Audio Setup' tab. The only active options are 'Quit' and 'New'. Clicking 'New' crashes Ardour.

What about save / reopen cycles? No problems?
