[Ardour-Users] Ardour froze, then started crashing

I was exporting a region when a message popped up saying that ardour 
couldn't connect with jack anymore.  At this point ardour froze.  I 
couldn't cancel the export, nor get any other response from ardour.
I had to kill ardour from command-line.

Using qjackctl I stopped and restarted jack.  Then I tried to restart 
ardour.  Ardour allowed me to select the song I was working on, but 
then it never made it passed one (I for get which) of it's splash 
messages.  Again, I had to kill ardour.

Next I stopped jack with qjackctl and exited qjackctl.  I noticed 
that jackd was still running, so I killed that.  Then I restarted 
qjackctl, started jackd with that, and started ardour.  At this point 
ardour would run.  But, it crashed on me 3 times doing simple things 
like keyboard shortcut "p" to move the playhead.

Did I corrupt my ardour file by killing ardour?

I'm running ardour 2.6.1, jack 0.109.2, and qjackctl 0.2.21.  Let me 
know if you want any more version numbers.

Thanks in advance for any comments or advice....
