Sounds like a problem in rezound. I did have a problem with rezound
getting kicked out when finishing a recording. Looks like it is not so
easy to create well behaved jack clients. A newer version of rezound is
coming to the planet very soon as well as a newer jack (plus 15+ more
updates and new packages :-)

Hmmm, I think the optimization refers to compiling ardour, not jack.
