[PlanetCCRMA] guaranteed deadlock w/ 2.4.20-4.ll.acpi

I am running redhat 8.0 with kernel-2.4.20-4.ll.acpi, jack-0.7.x (tried
0.70.. and the freshly updated 0.71..) and ecasound. Filesystems are all
ext3. Even when I run jack without the "-R" switch and as an unpriviliged
user, using 2 simultaneous sessions of ecasound to record (ecasound -t:60
-i:jack_alsa -G:jack,ecasound_rec1,streaming -o stdout) as root with or
without the "-r" switch, my system will deadlock reliably and immeadiatly.
It still responds to pings but nothing else. I am running with low-latency
on. The system is remote, so it's sort of a pain to test out different
configurations. Has anyone else seen this? I'd like to try with another
kernel, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Could it be the version of
alsa? my alsa is the latest one from planet-ccrma.

thanks in advance.
