I am not so sure that it would be as simple as that.  

First of all, just now I rebooted the machine and it works.  If the
pattern is the same as earlier today, I will now do other stuff and in
3-4 hours will restart Ardour with the same session and it would crash.
Each time by double clicking to make the plugin GUI appear.  Although
it is possible to say that the plugin, the OvertoneDSP RVB500, mightbe
doing something when brought up to front via some callback, it is
neverthless simply calling up the plugin's GUI.  No audio is going
through.  No parameter altered.

Speaking of parameters, Ardour does not store this plugin parameters.  I
have to manually set them after each session startup up, eg.selecting
the right preset.

Secondly, how should I mention using the RVB500 in Bitwig with no
crashes at all ?  And, Bitwig loads up the plugin's parameters.  Does
Bitwig really sandbox every plugin ?  If so, and if the RVB500 crashes,
then there should at least be no reverb, with Bitwig probably notifying
the user.  Haven't heard/seen that yet.

Now I have yet to load the RVB500 in Renoise...

The problem is not straightforward.
