People's experience with Ardour varies dramatically. Some of this is
workflow - people exercising different parts of the program. However,
I get bug reports that describe how to 100% reproducibly generate a
crash, and it works fine on my machine. That doesn't mean there aren't
bugs, of course. Its just that making a statement about "Ardour" is
meaningless (certainly on Linux) - you can only talk about a
particular build of Ardour running on a particular machine.

terminal messages are almost always useless for debugging purposes.
