Why don't you have a simple identifier string of the current version
installed within the preferences file.  Then when a fix comes out that needs
to change the preferences file it can identify it, notify the user on the
inital startup of ardour and ask if they want to keep their existing
preferences file or have it written over because of previous bugs?
I'm no programmer, but something like that doesn't seem to me too hard (but
if it is then I've got no other ideas!)
