[Ardour-Users] Crash - I'm really going nutsy here...

   I seem to have recovered it.  I rebooted, reloaded, and *this* time 
it was even worse!  ALL my edits were gone.  I thought for a bit, 
then checked the playlist.  There were 3.  I have no idea why, as I 
haven't used them at all - in fact, I still don't quite understand 
how they relate to everything else.  (yes I've read the dox - 
obviously I'll have to experiment --- later)

   Anyway, one of them had my edited session.  So hopefully I am back 
in business.
