Unfortunately, I don't either. I am plugging away with the few clues I
have, but I can't offer any promises.

When it's "rare" I can edit my own music for maybe an hour between
crashes. Before it was maybe ten minutes, and it was more like if I did
certain things it was likely to crash soon (maybe three or four minutes).
For my test file of 72 simultaneous notes, "rare" means that I usually
have to play it thru a few times to get a crash, and in some sessions it
just doesn't crash (so I quit and restart, then I can crash it) When it
was "serious", it usually crashed the first time thru.
I checked the 72 notes file against an old version (pre-logical
instruments), and that has what appears to be the same crash, segfaulting
at the same time the other version does. But there it's rarer than even
the "rare" version of logical-instruments.
This supports my suspicion that the connection to logical-instruments is
that I upset some delicate timing. My hope is to fix the whole timing
issue for good, but I'm not having any luck.
