Have tried getting the latest code from git and running that to see if that makes a difference - same result

Can you try if uninstalling the "csladspa" (csound ladspa plugin) package helps?

Some other Ubuntu users mentioned this on IRC before, but I don't know what exactly the issue is with it on Ubuntu.

Smells like some C++/C++11 ABI issue with the plugin using strings in the plugin descriptor.
