unfortunately, this is a stripped version of ardour, so the backtrace 
does not contain any useful information. maybe the devs can comment on 
how to obtain a pre-built version with debugging enabled? could be the 
nightly builds have it, but i'm not sure...
building ardour yourself (and then enabling debugging) would solve it, 
but it can be a somewhat daunting task when you do it for the first time.
