As Gunter mentioned, this really doesn't mean much, as the bug would show
up for some people and not others depending on specific details
apparently.  This was some time ago, but I remember when it first was
discovered what was going on, I was surprised as I had not run into it.
Then I ran into it on a different setup, either on the same machine or
otherwise, with very similar CALF and Ardour versions.  This was not a
simple, it will always crash type of bug, which is part of why it was
difficult to track down.

The issue has long since been fixed upstream IIRC, though whether the
distributions choose to package it is something else of course.
