SuSE 9.0 on a Pentium IV 2.8GHz, 256 MB RAM, Midiman Delta 44 + OmniIO
box, running on the stock SuSE kernel (2.4.21-243-default) using
WindowMaker as the desktop. The /home partition (where the session is)
has 36GB free.

OK, I admit I was being melodramatic. However, as right as you are

all your work, then log in and start again from scratch" vs. "lose all
your work, then press reset, log in and start again from scratch". I.e.

My guess is that this is problem, in trying to split it up into tracks
I've ended up with many regions, e.g. audio1-12 and the system crawls to
a halt with the disk light on constantly. Strangely it doesn't seem to
be paging, top shows about 33M of swap used with actually pretty light
on this machine.
