[Ardour-Users] Crash when doing file cleanup

I was working on a session when I decided to do a file cleanup, which
means I would save the session, use the file cleanup function, close
Ardour 4.4, restart it and then empty the waste bin.  But when I hit
the clean unused sources function Ardour crashed.  Now when I restart
this session it always asks what I want to do with missing files at
which I choose to ignore them.

Many tracks were in solo mode when using this function, if it matters.

See attached screen shot.  I believe the tracks shown at right in red
are the missing tracks.

Seemingly nothing that matters was lost, so that's good.  I can keep
working with this session and always choose ignore missing files at
startup I guess.  Or I can try the clean waste bin function now.  Nope,
did not change anything, still asking at startup.  Right-clicking on
one of those red tracks (or rather, regions) and choosing to delete
unused regions did remove some, but not all.
