Summary0006128: Changing from Overlaid to Stacked mode crashes ardour if track not tall enough
DescriptionIf a track contains many layers ardour sometimes crashes when you go from overlaid to stacked mode.

I think this occurs when the track height is set too small for ardour to sensibly draw all the layers in. I was able to stop the crash by expanding the track height loads.

I haven't checked this out properly yet as I'm in the middle of comping a vocal. But as soon as I get a chance I'll try and list the steps to reproduce it at least.

I'm using Debian's package at the moment (from About Window):
Ardour 3.5.403~dfsg-3
(built from revision 3.5.403~dfsg-3)

I can try any version you like if you like, I've been able to build reliably from git in the past and I'm sure I could manage again if it would help somebody.
TagsNo tags attached.

I just tried with 33 overlaid regions, smallest track height with Ardour 3.5.4286
Switch to layered mode -> no crash (it's a visual mess though, but that's not unexpected).

I'm pretty sure this only affects the old canvas 3.5.403 (or earlier).

There's no need to build from git if you don't want to: offers nychthemeral builds.

Only just noticed this bug is still open. I've not experienced this particular crash for ages (I've been using later versions). This can probably be closed without any further investigation.
