I remember that it is MIDIyoke giving that error. But I haven't been 
running it for quite some time. I remember that feedback detection on 
midiyoke was releated to number of events per second and it was 
optional. It had some sort of control panel, and you were able to 
disable feedback detection but I'm not sure if that is still the case.
