I don't see <ControlOuts> in my XML file. I removed some sends and
inserts and removed spaces from some IO names, and while I no longer
get the duplicate ports error, the session still won't load and I
still get the 'Unable to create all required ports' message. This is
in 2.1... if I try to load in 2.3, a dialog box pops up with an error
but then the app segfaults before I get a chance to read the dialog

Looks like may just need to create the session from scratch and add my
source audio back in manually. Phooey.
