Try other jack applications to try to find out if it is jack or 
alsaplayer. I don't think I have updated anything that could affect either 
(not recently). The new ecasound is now jack-aware but it should not 
affect other jack programs. 

You can see which rpms were installed when by doing a:
  rpm -q -a --last | more

Let me know what the result is since the last time you had the system
