Summary0008760: Infinite loop in PortGroupList::gather
DescriptionIf one of the ports disappears when PortGroupList::gather() is busy, .get_port_by_name() might return NULL and the iterator is not incremented before continuing the loop, resulting in an infinite loop.

Possible patch:

diff --git a/gtk2_ardour/ b/gtk2_ardour/
index 30c4aa828f..fbe63e22d9 100644
--- a/gtk2_ardour/

                                PortEngine::PortHandle ph = AudioEngine::instance()->port_engine().get_port_by_name (p);
                                if (!ph) {
+ ++s;

But it might be better to move the s++ in the for statement and remove the many `++s; continue;` patterns.
Steps To ReproduceNo reliable way to trigger this but having a lot of ports being added/removed will trigger it, like when starting/stopping pavucontrol or changing the card profile under PipeWire.
