This might point to a bug in ardour that has been fixed in the mean
time. It does not need to do so necessarily, though:
When one tries to write a virus one important task is to find a way to
make a system crash in a way that it execute the viruses code - with a
Sometimes the system will only crash when the right memory location
happens to contain the right value exactly at the right moment. This is
the case if a unitialized buffer is used by the application. Sometimes
it crashes completely and therefore is useless for the virus. And
sometimes the system will jump to a wrong location but the code that is
to be found there won't do anything strange.
Don't know if ardour did anything to actively hinder a buggy calf from
crashing and if would be actually possible. But sometimes crashes
appear and reappear just by accident when completely non-related things
are changed in a program.
