Summary0007682: Creating snapshots becomes extremely slow when the project has too many MIDI regions
DescriptionI've noticed that after I cross a certain point - my projects start to take a few minutes to create snapshot.

I'm often using "Snapshot (& switch to new version)" to have a copy of project, and continue my work.

My workflow includes using a lot of MIDI regions as I synthesize everything including drums - that seems to make Ardour choke at some point when creating new snapshots.

What is interesting - the problem doesn't occur when saving current snapshot "in-place" (regular Session > Save function).

I'm attaching an example session that this affected by this problem, though I see this happen in every single project after some point. it makes it quite difficult to work as I'd like to.
Steps To Reproduce1. Load the attached session in Ardour 5.12
2. Perform "Snapshot (& switch to new version)"
3. See Ardour completely lock up for a few minutes.
TagsNo tags attached.
