I have the same problem on my Archlinux x86_64 install, running vanilla and extended with jackd. The same thing happens on my debian install on the same laptop (Core2 T6400, 2GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 4GB RAM).
I don't live patch (yet), and found out that if you exit edit mode it works a little better (there's still the ocassional dropout).

It would be nice to have a clue on how to avoid this anyway.

Thanks to all,
