> 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 should be cleared that I run jackd with the same config for far heavier realtime dps stuff (many plugins loaded in ardour, with realtime input) and that I've already tried increasing the frames in jackd's config. The dropouts do not make jackd report an xrun, and here is my ~/.pdsettings
