0.109.10svn (normal jackd, not jackdmp) is working well here, except
that specimen (0.5.2-0.1.rc3.fc7.ccrma) crashes on startup.  Not sure
if it's jack-related or not.

On a related note, this combo of jack and kernel
( seems to be working well on my machine.
 I can now run with a period of 256, instead of my normal 512, with no
xruns.  This was with Ardour, ams, a few fluidsynths, and seq24
running.  Unfortunately, I haven't been consistent in trying this and
noting the results, so I don't know which update helped.

Thanks for all the hard work!
