5. Load Session and select 'Skip all missing files' in Missing file dialog.

A Loading Error dialog is displayed with the error message "Session..." did not load successfully: Cannot configure audio/midi engine with session parameters

solved in Ardour 5.4-101-gfeed964

It might be easier to amend dbf86a495b8 and simply remove "must_exist = true;"
( line 149, if (Glib::path_is_absolute (_origin)) ..)

It's unclear to me under what conditions is must_exit == false with an _origin set and why the file is required to exist in that case, so I special cased the c'tor instead for SilentFileSource.
