If you saved the project at any time, make a backup copy of the AUP file and the _data folder.
If the project has never been saved, look in /var/temp/audacity-username, where 'username' is your log-in name, and check that it is not empty.
If it's not empty, make a backup copy of the entire /var/temp/audacity-username folder.

If the project has never been saved and /var/temp/audacity-username is empty, that's the end of the story.

If you are able to locate the data, then after making a backup copy of the data and the Autosave file:
Crash exit out of Audacity so that Audacity does not delete any data (from the command line: killall audacity)

Delete all of the "\00\00\00" corruption from the autosave file, and one of the </project> tags. There should be one opening tag for the project and one closing tag to match it. The closing tag for the project is </project>
Then restart Audacity and see if it can recover the project from the modified autosave file.
