I just wanted to check if anybody has solved or seen this problem yet before I report it on mantis. When I load a session and then load another session using the Recent Dialog, I get a segmentation fault. Here is the terminal output:

Yes, sadly opening two sessions (Or snapshots which are just sessions) without closing Ardour in between is known to cause crashes intermittently as of right now. For the time being the best practice is to close Ardour with each session you complete work on.

Thanks for the reply seablade, it's good to know this is a known issue.
