fwiw, i'm using current svn (2.8.4 and then some), and except for some 
rare crashes due to massive abuse (like really wild zooming while 10+ 
channels are playing back or recording), ardour behaves really well, 
also in mission-critical live situations (but there i'm very careful not 
to do potentially dangerous stuff...)

ardour won't just disappear: if there's a crash, you will see something 
like "segmentation fault" on the console. read the README and the bug 
report howto and see if you can obtain backtraces if/when ardour really 
goes down.

in any case, your problems with spdif or adat are not at all related to 
ardour - i believe you may have more fundamental problems with your 
audio setup.

hope that is reassuring and helps to put you on the right track :)
