We too are having a lot of session destruction going on.  And what's worse is once any single
session gets hosed, if you don't exit before opening another session will cause it to be hosed as
well. (I know this should NOT be possible).  Problem is I haven't figure out exactly what is
causing it, nor have I figured a good way to reproduce it.  Lots of time we have 3 hours or more
into the session using touch controls when it all goes to hell, so pinpointing what is doing isn't
easy.  We aren't using looping, we are moving regions, it's all live recording work that is being

We have yet to do one single nights recording where one of our sessions has not been destroyed by
this gremlin, (we've only done 3 of them) and our most recent experience killed 2 sessions.
