I had a similar problem once, months ago. When i zoomed very deeply into 
tracks, the HD activity started to get very high, then the box freezed.
I suspect some sort of ram leakage causing the cache to overflow.

I found that the cause of the problem was something bad using the "Fill track" 
or "duplicate" functions. I observed that the resulting copies were sometimes 
slighly misaligned. And repositionning them could improve somehow the 
situation, but ardour would keep freezing in the process.

Well, i have no clue if this is fixed now, i didn't check it anew. Could be 
something related, may be.
