segfault with ardour 2.2

Hi, I’ve just upgraded from 2.0.5 to 2.2 (I use Gentoo) and ardour now fails to start. I get the initial screen, but if I either open an existing project or start a new one, the program dies with a segmentation fault error.

I have updated the configuration files in /etc/ardour2, and removed the old ~/.ardour2/ directory, but it didn’t help.

Any ideas? Any suggestions of what I can do to get more info?
