Summary0006841: Current code is crashing if I select 'Window->Bindings Editor'
DescriptionIf I load a session (in either the current build of Mixbus or Ardour) I see a crash if I select 'Window->Bindings Editor'

Selecting that option ends up calling 'KeyEditor::search_string_updated()' - which in turn calls 'KeyEditor::current_tab()'

'KeyEditor::current_tab()' returns NULL. So I'm guessing that we somehow haven't set up a current tab for the Bindings editor.
Additional Information2 points might be significant:-

1) I discovered this in my MSVC build but I assume it also affects gcc build(s).

2) The keybindigs editor stuff got changed a week or two ago, so I'm guessing that's where the problem crept in.
TagsNo tags attached.

This seems to be related to my previous bug report about mismatched text case:-

In other words, if I open my file "ardour.keys" and I then capitalize the entries for each Bindings name, the crash goes away (i.e. the Bindings Editor window then gets displayed correctly).

The changes to the bindings rendered old "ardour.keys" files invalid. Deleting and recreating the file should work fine. I created a pull request to prevent that particular crash but the keyeditor will be empty in these cases.

What do I need to do to recreate ardour.keys? Deleting it doesn't cause a new one to get generated (unless I'm missing something...)

This seems to have been fixed by Commit 1316e85d (Mathias Buhr - 28-Mar-2016).

FWIW 'ardour.keys' still contains the wrong capitalization (so the Bindings window is empty when opened) but at least it doesn't crash any more.

This file should be created/updated when you customize the default keybindings, e.g. when you edit them via the dialog.

Thanks napcode. The problem is that if the file is missing / corrupted / wrongly capitalized etc, nothing shows up in the dialog (so there's nothing available to edit).

Yes, I know. Did you delete that file? Maybe there is another one to delete as well. In any case it should work if you delete/rename ardours cfg folder.
