this is a known problem. if you solo something which implicitly soloes 
other tracks or buses (which seems to be the case here - i assume both 
tracks for the instrument were grouped), then delete the explicitly 
soloed track or bus, the others get stuck. your best bet is to edit a 
copy of the session file by hand, look for "soloed-by" iirc.

fwiw, make a habit of saving snapshots regularly, so if such crashes 
happen again, you have a recent version to go back to. i've never seen 
the problem you describe, but after a few unpleasant incidents a while 
ago i've been quite good at making those snapshots :)
