[Ardour-Users] corrupt project, plea for help

Hi All,

I've posted this error to the list before with not much response.  I've also
reported it as a bug to Fedora, since I'm using their build of Ardour.  I
now have two Ardour sessions that will not open.  These are projects that I
have spent a lot of time on and really don't want to loose.  The recordings
are very important to me.  Anyways... I don't know what is appropriate to
ask but I will say that (current problems aside) I love using Ardour.  I am
willing to pay somebody or make a donation to Ardour if I can get some help
with this.  If there is any way for me to get these sessions to open I would
love to know.

The error I get in the terminal window when i try to open the session is:

Pango-ERROR **: Unable to open font file
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf for font DejaVu Sans 9.9990234375,


I checked for this file and it seems to be there:

$ ls -l /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 570468 2007-09-18 19:18

When this problem first occurred, it was intermittent.  I could retry
opening the session and it would open.  But now I get the error every time.

Could someone please advise me on what is the best route to take towards
getting these sessions to open?

Thanks so much,
