The crashes here are not related to convolution engine, but likely
because of IR.LV2's background configuration thread. I only get crashes
when it's recalculation envelopes or re-loading IR files. It is not
always reproducible and it's hard to get a backtrace when it's running
inside Ardour. I can try with jalv.gtk.

Once it's running and I don't change parameters it is stable.

I'm using ir.lv2-1.3.1 with libzita-convolver-3.0.1 (both from debian).
I've only just seen that 1.3.2 is out; yet my production machine is
squeeze with gtk-2.X, so I can't upgrade easily, but I'll recompile it
at the next convenient update breakpoint.
