Damn, that's a drag. Sorry, but I've not run into that one and don't
know any way around it.

It would be VERY risky, but if this is a NEW version of Ardour the
developers have put in some sort of 'crash' protection that gets your
session back after a crash. Don't know exactly how you'd engineer a
'crash', but if you could them *maybe* the crash protection would save

One other idea. Can you open a terminal and just copy the whole
directory somewhere else? If the session is really not saved, but you
have the audio and most of the session file, maybe it won't be that
hard to get things patched up.

Really sorry you're stuck in such a mess. good luck!
