Today I tried to edit the session file directly and removed the monitoring section and routes. With this, I could load the session (with warnings) and then save it back.

So obviously, the Monitoring section has some problems somehow. Also see issue 6758 (

There have been some fixes related to the monitoring section, can you please re-test your session with recent/nightly build to see if this issue is now resolved.

The session now loads again, so this seems to be fixed. As for the other issue (6758), this is still there.
