This sounds suspiciously like the error I ran into a couple of weeks ago.
My problem turned out to be the use of the CAPS EQ plugin in my session.
There's something about the version (0.3.0) I had on my system, which was 
installed as part of the Planet CCRMA distributrion for FC5, that did not 
play well with Ardour 2.0.5.  I removed the CAPS RPM from my system, then 
got the latest version (0.4.2) of the plugins from the source site, 
installed them, and my session loaded fine after that.

The CAPS source code is here:  http://quitte.de/dsp/caps.html
