My first attempts at trying to get Ardour to fail or get critical have been amazing. Playing 16 tracks while recording another 8, no Xruns (256 buffer), great improvements from previous kernels, although I did not quantify this. It just feels a lot more stable. I guess this is kernel/alsa and also Ardour/Jack related.

What do you mean by menus changing or dissapearing? I don't see that
happening in my tests, I guess the only way for that to happen would be
to add or erase packages (that have menu entries). Any examples you can
remember? On which environment? (gnome, kde, etc).

Hmmm, I don't know, the reasons I had to not mess with this (it
eventually leads to me having to debug windows problems!) is still
valid... I guess I could eventually provide some rpms but it is not that
easy because vst support affects several apps.
