yes, but since using gdb requires to rebuild the ardour package [1], I
would first take a look by running 'top', to see if still something is
going on [2].

First of all, is there a reason that my mails to this list need to pass

This would be true, if there would be any relevant messages. It's a
language I don't understand, however, without doubts the OP just gets
the usual information messages and then nothing happens. The content of
those messages is about the open files limit etc., there are no error

An error message could look like this

ardour: [ERROR]: ControlProtocolManager: cannot load module "/usr/lib/ardour5/surfaces/libardour_wiimote.so" (/usr/lib/libcwiid.so.1: undefined symbol: hci_close_dev)

The first thing I would do, to troubleshoot, would open a second
terminal and take a look if running


does show something. In a third terminal I would start with taking a
look at

  ps aux | grep ardour


pacman -Q linux{,-rt{-securityink,-pussytoes,-cornflower,}}|cut -d\  -f2
