They both store session state in a file with a different basename than

"name" of the session to the newly chosen name, so that all future (1)
saves will be the new files. "Snapshot" does not do this, so that all
future (1) saves will continue to be to the normal, default session
(4) saves the current session name (as possibly modified by "Save as")
.ardour.bak. This file exists purely for the use of the skilled user.
Ardour does not load it, check for its existence, etc, etc.
(5) is the same as (1).

a snapshot made by (3) will not be modified by 1, 2, 4 or 5. a
"snapshot" made by (2) will be modified by subsequent 1 or 5.
there is another potential saved state too, but you don't need to know
about that :)
