   If you go research this nthe Jack-Devel list there was a thread I
started on this issue maybe 6-9 months ago. I don't remember the
eventual decisions about how important this was. In my case the
problems cleared up with a kernel change, but maybe they've returned 
and I haven't noticed. Ugh...

Take care,
