Summary0006848: Freeze when deleting a region
DescriptionArdour freezes when deleting a specific region. Some other operations (drag, move edges, etc.) on the other regions can cause the same as well but I can't find the exact combination.
Steps To Reproduce1. Load the attached project file. I have removed all the wave files, so select "skip all missing files" - it does not affect the behavior.
2. Select the "Ac. 1b" region (it's the single one).
3. Press "Delete" - Ardour freezes

Some additional testing:
1. Load the same project again
2. Drag a little bit the right edge of the top-right "Ac. 1" region of the "Ac.Guitar m1" track
3. Try to delete the "Ac. 1b" region again - it is now deleted successfully
4. Undo
5. Drag the right edge of the top-right region back so that it is aligned with the others
6. Try to delete the "Ac. 1b" region - Ardour freezes
Additional InformationThe problem is present in Ardour 4.7.0 and 4.7.503. I recorded both tracks simultaneously in a group, multiple takes are the layers.
