Thanks for the reply, Matthew.

Yeah, it sure could have been something in KDE, but then again, it could 
  have been lower in xwindows, right?

I think I'm going to try out icewm and see how it goes.

Anyway, to answer your question:
I haven't done anything on the particular machine but keep qjackctl and 
pd run with pd's testtone.pd.
Started at 17:09 and it's now 21:54 with no problem and no xruns.
So far so good. Need to tax it now, though.

Thanks much!
