Look through the listings in Jack-Rack, and you will see which plugins 
are labelled "NOT RT". I agree with Jesse that this is pretty 
"conservative", but there are ones which simply aren't optimized for 
realtime and do crash things. I get this in Jack-Rack in particular when 
I test things out, although I guess TAP Reverb crashed Ardour for me 
because it's broken, not because it's non-RT.

You would use them in non-realtime rendering. Rezound, for example, 
doesn't do effects previews [actually, I really hate this!]. I am sure 
there are others.
