[PlanetCCRMA] jackstart and freqtweak hang my system

   I have seen the jackstart part. When Jack runs, it creates files in the
/tmp directory. When Jack is killed, or you have a crash, these files are
not cleaned up. When you try to start Jack, Jack sees these files, and
decides it cannot run. This is the first message about cannot connect to
jack server.

   The inconsistency is that even though Jack cannot connect because of
these files, it cleans the files up. This means the second time you start
Jack, since the files are not there, it can create a new set of files and
Jack then runs.

   As for freqtweak crashing, I have never seen this. It's been one of the
easier programs for me to use.

Good luck,
