Did you by any chance upgrade snd the last two weeks? In case, can you
try an earlier version?
I did a very small change in the jack code for about two weeks ago which
was supposed to decrease the number of dropouts, but I could have made a
mistake. (happened a lot lately for some reason)
And, does alsa and/or oss drop out as well? Please test...

Thats not good. Better ask on the linux-audio-user list. I still use the
realtime-lsm module instead of that new system, and it works just great.
