I may have missed this in the thread, but are you sure the audio file for
the track is gone?  I've had Ardour crash and lose a track if I haven't 
saved the session, but I've always been able to re-create the track and 
find the audio for it somewhere in the session directory, and bring it back
in to the track.  

I've never had Ardour actually lose the recorded audio, but I've had 
sessions that lose track of where it is.  In Ardour3, the audio files live in
