Does this happen even if jack (through Qjackctl or whatever) was started 
*before you start Pd??

If so I guess it could be this bug:


Indeed also turning DSP off when jack was auto-started by Pditselfscrews 
everything up.

The workaround in this case would be to always start jack *before* 
starting Pd, then everything seems to behave well.
