Thanks. I hope I won't have to go back, and since I'm having problems right
now, if the new version of jack fixes them, I'll just declare victory and
more forward!

Hmmm, not using apt. You could manually download the rpms for the older
version (which I have not yet erased from the web site) and use "rpm
-Uvh --force" to force rpm to "upgrade" to an older version (or erase
the jack rpms with "rpm -e --nodeps" and install the older ones with
"rpm -Uvh"). Obviously on the next apt-get dist-upgrade apt will try to
upgrade again to the latest :-)

The rpms for 7.3 would be at:
You'd have to download the jack rpms with version 0.41.1 (I think).
