Sorry about that. I sent a few messages related to that to the list and
finally decided to upgrade (to 0.66.4, latest cvs as of yesterday). The
problem is that I have to rebuild all clients but qjackconnect still
dies when a jack client exits. I guess we will have to live with that. 

The building is almost done. I have not yet done ecasound cvs (and maybe
that will have to wait) and can't rebuild soundtracker because the
transport api in jack changed and there are (to my knowledge) no patches
for it.

You should probably upgrade your kernel and alsa. There are instructions
in the changelog in the planetccrma web page. The repository structure
for the kernel changed and you need to update both sources.list and
apt.conf (and that is probably why synaptic is hanging).

Not yet, latter today for sure, I'll send another message (obviously)
when it is up and running.
