Thats a good idea.
I just had a though for a work-around. Its going to be slow AND annoying, at the same time it could save some cycles. You could try routing the output from the track with the plugin as the input to a new track (basically, "bounce" the track). After you do that, then you can 'disable' the track with the plugin. If you just 'mute' the original track, then the plugin will still use CPU so you will want to 'disable' it instead. Unfortunately, im not at my machine and i dont remember exactly how to do that. This should save some cycles for you. Sorry that i dont have a simpler work-around.

Thanks. I'm glad I'm not alone. I fear I am going to need to need the freeze
as it's going to be a very long session with lots of tracks. I'm building a
5.1 track for an amateur play with loads of sound effects and fill music.
I'll try to report it as a bug.

I have had the same issue. Im running FC3 with Ardour 0.99 on it. This was
several months ago and i dont remember which
plugin, but i do know it wasnt GVerb because i dont think ive ever used that
one. Anyway, when i did the freeze it made the
track really loud with a lot of clipping. I ended up unfreezing the track
because i had the CPU cycles to spare, but i am curious
as to what caused it (in case i need to do it in the future).

I'm using the freeze function for a track as it's a very small track and
nothing should change in it (I believe the freeze function is used to reduce
CPU use for tracks that one doesn't want to change). There is just a GVerb
effect added. Before freeze the track plays perfectly but when I freeze it
there is lots of distortion that sound like clipping. When I unfreeze it
again, it goes back to normal. If I remove the GVerb and freeze, then the
track is undistorted. I've tried this in Alpha2 and 0.99-2 and it happens in
both. Should the freeze function leave the output exactly as unfrozen? If
anyway can help me, I'd be grateful.
Also, another issue, on Alpha2, on freezing, the progress bar indicator
doesn't increase on my system.
