As you said... at the right time.  I am not close  to a internet 
connection at all times, so it's gonna be hard.

2.1 still has the problem, and I attached a backtrace to this mail.

To cause the segfault:

    * open Ardour2
    * Open a session
    * make sure "use MMC" and "send MTC" is selected
    * Start the transport: MTC sync is locked and working.
    * Move any of the faders on the mixer: "cannot sent quarter frame"
      messages appear
    * Keep moving fader - Segfault

I hope this helps you to recreate the problem.
I checked out the code in (the working) 0.99.x ardour I used before.  
Looks very much the same to me! Strange indeed!
