before you do anything else, please take a copy of your session file 
(the .ardour file) and the file called instant.xml in the session 
directory. These can be used to help debug and possibly fix the problem.

Once you have a copy of these available, you can try editing the 
instant.xml file. It has an XML-element called Editor, with a "zoom" 
property. Making the value bigger should zoom out, and might fix your 
problem. Please report back whether or not this helped!
