Yikes. This really needs sorting out. Can you cook up a recipe for us on how
to duplicate this? What you wrote there sounds like a good start, but I'm
interested whether you can duplicate this issue in a new session with only a
handful (=minimum) amount of regions.

We (should) have an autosave timer in Ardour, but obviously either it
doesn't work, or Ardour didn't load the autosaved version. This has to be
looked at.

What information does the popup region editor show you about the fades? Can
you enable them from the editor and thus continue with the session?
