Thanks for the heads up, indeed a recent update (march/15) broke this.
I'm working on a fix.

Should be fixed in today's nightly 5.8-212 (or later). Please test.

(I don't have access to a PPC system to actually test, only a Intel 10.6.8 with PPC emulator)

Thank you very much. Nightly 5.8.212 did not crash when opening the program on the PowerMac G5. I did get a different crash later when using the program, but want to see if it is reproducible or not.

Is this still an issue with Ardour 6.0-pre1?
