Unable to repro with 77bd398153240390362fea83533627e6d767ddb3 / Ubuntu. Looking at stack trace in crash file suggests this is likely Mac specific.

That's probably useful info for the team, thanks.

Will be interesting to see if anyone else on Mac can repro.

I can't reproduce this with 5.3(32-bit) on OS X version 10.6.8

I will try to test with a more recent version of OS X to see if that makes any difference.

The crash log shows a thread calling EditorLocations::~EditorLocations which is nonsensical in the context of the description of the cause of this crash.

I don't know what to say, but I can reproduce this consistently, and the logs always seem to point to EditorLocations::~EditorLocations. The calls do seem to lead back to the Quartz GTK backend, so this could have nothing to do with Ardour itself.

Occasionally it occurs on the second right click.

I've attached three more crash logs, in case they can help in any way.

Also, the bug only seems to occur with meter markings. Tempo, Punch range, and other flags at the top of the timeline don't seem to be affected.

EditorLocations is a persistent object that will exist for the life of the program. It shouldn't (can't) be in the destructor for EditorLocations if the program isn't exiting.

I suspect memory corruption which in turn leads to both the crash and the backtrace being incorrect.

I can try it on El Capitan, but likely not till Monday.

Great -- let me know if there are any other logs or information you need from me!
