1) Should I be concerned with this even if I'm not using that EQ on any
track ?

2) Why is Ardour suddenly refusing to load a session with which it had
no problem whatsoever loading before ?

3) Why then there are no problems loading any other session.  The
problem pertains only with one session.

4) The most dramatic one: when will it be the turn of any other
session ?  When will another session in which hours of work were put
into be refusing to load ?

Ah, so many questions.  I think I'll start doing backups of the
sessions on a daily basis.  I was planning to get another drive
anyways.  500 GB drives are pretty cheap now.

I would dearly like to spot the problem with that session.  I think
I'll get the debug info from CCRMA and launch Ardour under gdb.  gdb
should show immediately the place where it segfaults.
