[PD] "audio I/O stuck... closing audio" error message

I'm aware of the sequence of launching apps from OS X - I use Pd there with
Jack and it works flawlessly. My mac is away for service, so I seriously
needed to get started with Linux on another computer.
This time I wanted to be very sure so I checked carefully - the moment Jack
is selected as audio device in Pd it appears in Jack's connection panel. So
I made sure that both in and out of Pd are connected to the 'system' and
after that clicked in Pd on 'apply'. And it is working now :-)  the sky is
full of violins

I checked on using ALSA directly from Pd but it doesn't work - no feedback
on the canvas and no output. This is like my audio hardware under OS X which
also doesn't work directly from Pd. So I didn't really expect it.

Thanks for your advice and time, very much appreciated.
