[ardour-users] Ardour crashing X windows

Try out a very recent version of ardour and see if that makes a 
difference. I see ladspa related crashes but none of them takes X down. 
Last X lock I had was related to disk underruns during playback of 70 
mono tracks. That issue was fixed a week ago.

Another aspect here is the way you make jackstuff run with realtime 
capabilities: kernelversion, jack invocation etc.
