[PlanetCCRMA] jack not running

   Hi. I start jack using:

jackstart -R -d alsa -r 44100 -d Audigy

I then run jack_lsp and it shows me the default ports recognized by jack. I
then go away for a period of time. Later I come back and run jack_lsp again.
(I guess you could call that a new app n this case.) jack_lsp tells me that
jack server is not running. It is still running according to ps -aux.

I am wondering where the jackstart nomenclature comes from. I did not see
that in the jack files themselves, but could have missed it. It seems that
the 'normal' (read non-Planet) way to start jack would be jackd -R .....

So, is this new apps that cannot connect? Or old apps that were connected
when you left loose the connection to jack? Or both? Any error messages in
jack's terminal?
