Hi Derek

It's too late now, but I had a "frozen" ardour at one point last week but 
didn't do anything (went to drink some coffee) and it was back to normal 
after a few minutes.
This might be completely unrelated, because in my case, ardour froze, but the 
machine itself was normal, but I am running a smp-box so that might make a 
difference. Anyway don't be too quick to reboot.
