Ahm, sorry, since when does Ardour do midi? ;)

No, I looked it up on the website of Jack now, and there's not a hint
of the word Midi there. I know, that there is an unpublished midi
suport for Jack in the works, which seems to have some legal problems
to be sorted out, but none of the official versions of Jack support

Maybe you are thinking about the midi connections tab in qjackctl??
This has nothing to do with Jack itself but it is a conneciton manager
for the ALSA sequencer. To use Pd with that, you need to load the
snd-virmidi module which creates ALSA sequencer enabled rawmidi
devices. Search google for me and the "Softsynth and Midi Howto".
