yes, but they are not going to go away any time soon. i wonder: is it 
possible to have some sort of SIGSEGV handler (maybe in the form of a 
wrapper around the ardour binary) that could alert the user to the fact 
that the crash happened in a plugin? or would any of this incur a hefty 
performance overhead?

that said, jonetsu, since this seems to be nicely reproducible, do you 
know how to obtain a backtrace of the crash?


i don't recall which platform you're on, but if it's linux, the process 
is pretty straightforward.
