What's the combined CPU usage of all three together?
The RAM usage?
Loading lots of samples in Live or PD?

I've noticed that running PD with Live has a high graphical overhead on 
OSX. PD's GUI isn't very optimized on OSX and Ableton is simply bloated. 
You might try changing the way you view your samples in Live...get rid 
of the waveform viewer, which uses a lot of graphics resources as well. 
I recall now that I had this problem early on with my set that used 
both, and that's how I dealt with it.

Last, my OSX has been 10.4 for a while now. Maybe JackOSX is better 
integrated with 10.4?
