[ardour-dev] export problems - testers requested

Problems with export are one of just two remaining items preventing
the release of ardour 0.99. Reports to the mailing list/mantis/#ardour
seem inconclusive at present. One user who was having crashes every
time he tried to downsample from 48kHz -> 44.1kHz reports that
updating his system fixed the problem. Other reports are confusing, or

I would really appreciate it if as many as people as possible could
try exports on sessions longer than, say, 5 minutes, with and without
down and upsampling. These tests should be run with JACK in realtime
and non-realtime mode, and you should note which version of JACK you
are using. Also report which version of glibc you have, like this:

    % ls /lib/libc.so.*

then execute the most obvious one to get something like:
