Ok... ...found out how to crash ardour (the git head from 2 days ago)
reliably on my Ubuntu Box. Seems like it requires loads of
 - Select 2 files to import and press "Import" with the mapping "One
track per file".
 - Abort this action
 - select "merge files"
 - Press "Import"
 - After the track has finished importing ardour crashes.

Kind regards,
