Well despite the backtrace pointing to gtk/glib this has nothing to do
with gtk. It also does not affect upstream ardour3-svn.

The problem is dues to [my videotimeline patch] linking ardour3 to
libboost_regex.so - and I suspect a boost version conflict but i did not
yet have the time to poke around.

It's a bit weird; just adding
  #include <boost/regex.hpp>
to _any_ .cc file in gtk2_ardour and linking to -lboost_regex
will cause ardour3 to segfault on g_build_path_va() of glib/gfileutils.c
There no need to use one of the boost-regex functions..

Unlikely as it sounds, maybe it's some version conflict between
libboost-regex-1.40.0  and libglib-2.28.6 glib..?!

more next week,
