In my experience, ardour can be pretty flaky. Even when you are not zooming

I was doing a pretty light recording (4 channel, presonus) for a little over
1 hr. Ardour must have crashed 4 times; one time it even dropped an entire
region. I was basically just letting it record...

So, kinda OT, but I just had to say it. Ardour is not really that stable.

Try running it from terminal, so you can read the stdout and get the error
