There's nothing wrong with libxml2, as I explained previously.

You know, we still haven't used the 13.37 version number. ;-)

LOL, the OP asked a similar question not long before 13.1 was released:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...13-1-a-802054/
... and he lists "Slackware 12.2" as his distribution in his profile.

Who would have thought of 13.37?! Ok, 13.32 or 13.54 are obvious choices, but 13.37?!!!
I haven't been using Slackware long enough to come up with that

I don't pretend to understand it (and obviously I don't, as was just pointed out)... but there's something screwy in the interaction between zlibs and libxml2. I don't know what else it does, but it makes Ardour so unstable as to be useless.

An older version of libxml2 was using the zlib API incorrectly, and that caused quite a few things to be "screwy," but that should be fixed now.

Does ardour statically link libxml2, and if so, was it built before -current was bumped to libxml2-2.7.7?

Are you suggesting I rebuild Ardour? I can do that...

There is a newer libxml2, and while it doesn't claim to address any zlib issues it probably wouldn't hurt to bump that again.

I'll let you know what happens after I rebuild Ardour. I REALLY want to get Ardour working on the desktop machine; it's got a lot more horespower than either of the laptops.

I agree number versions are more interesting.
