That doesn't help if ardour freezes completely. That means that it
doesn't exit at all due to a fault which would cause a segmentation

You can get a backtrace by running ardour withing gdb, and stopping the
application from gdb when ardour is frozen. You can stop ardour by
pressing CTRL-Z from the gdb console. Then give gdb the magic command
"thread apply all bt" and send the results here.

It's also probably a good idea to run jackd without -R and in soft mode,
so gdb doesn't slow ardour down so much that it would be kicked out of
