i suspect you had a problem with a previous version in which
any automation data/curves were stored in an incorrect format. for
various reasons this leads to the code in libart_lgpl behaving very
badly and allocating huge quantities of memory, causing a swap storm
and ultimately killing things or the machine.

i don't know of a long term fix for this - there are no actual illegal
values for automation data - but the immediate cause of it was fixed 

and then again, perhaps you have uncovered some other problem. if you
have them, i'd be interested to see the lines you had to remove.
