I think it means that jack has zombified muse.

It could be because of your harddisk, but you can try increasing the
period size in qjackctl (you will get worse latency, but it should help
this) or turning on "soft mode" in qjackctl.

I think you have to quit and restart qjackctl for some changes to take
effect, but I'm not sure.
