This might be the same issues which bothered me some time ago. Try 
running jack using '-R' and '-P' parameters together like:

jackd -R -P 15 -d alsa ....

You can also set -P in qjackctl

For me everything above 11 worked without these errors on alsa, for 
firewire audio I had to set it slightly higher.

Also have a look at what roman said in this thread, which was quite helpful:
