Could I urge you to consider carefully before you switch cm completely to 
jack and no alsa at all? I found jack to be extremely problematic at least 
on my system, while using alsa works fine. For example, I can get cm/clm 
to play 4-channel files fine while getting jack to work with 4-channels is 
erratic (I could get it working, but not perfectly, on fc8. On FC10 it 
isn't working at all). That and similar problems mean that I try to stay 
away from jack. Perhaps it's just my soundcard (or me) but I would hope to 
be able to keep on using cm withouth jack.
