A tough situation, and I sympathize with you. On the other hand,
please understand that nobody using a source build has been able to
duplicate the problem you've reported, which suggests that it is a
CCRMA-build specific problem. Its pretty hard for us to debug a
problem like that and we'd rather than Fernando and/or the community
of CCRMA-loving ardour users figure it out. But yeah, not very nice
for you.

Please do so. They are unlikely to be real, given that there are
several thousand people who have compiled ardour from source (judging
from a very conservative interpretation of the download figures). But
will do our best to help you fix/understand them.
