[Ardour-Users] ardour - linux to mac - fail and crash

hello hello,

One day later - and strange but good news

In Linux I removed all plugins of my Ardour sessions, I saved and then
I took a snapshot of my session.
The plugin I used most was Ladspa multiband equalizer - not something exotic.
On one session I used a Calf compressor, but that's about it..

- When I open my saved session it crashes
- When I open the snapshots all is fine

O, and Seablade, the OsX Ardour works like a charm otherwise - I
tweaked it myself for the studio, updating the drivers for the
hammerfall card etc..
So creating a new session is easy

For ergonomics sake: do I delete the session and it's history?
Keep only the snapshot?

Thanks for following, hope this helps - here's the error report anyway
