i spent yesterday trying to figure out whats going wrong, including an  
upgrade to the latest ubuntustudio to make sure my basic tools are  
in the new ubuntustudio environment am able to get  midi port  
connections in grace but i still dont see any audio ports. i cant get  
audio ports in the juce demo either, so ill have to post something on  
the juce site i guess. i think there is also a thread issue on linux,  
i see a "wait cursor" fairly regularity once i send midi messages.
the sndlib instruments are working and its is possible to write .wav  
files but not play them back in the playback window. i can play the  
audio files fine using an external app though.

on the plus side ive got s7/sndlib working in windows pretty well now  
using the native ms compier, and the audio playback window is now  
displaying the waveform now.
