This is actually quite complicated. In the sandbox tester nframes
is a long, which is 64 bits on x86_64, not 32 bits like on i386.
In ardour it looks like nframes is jack_nframes_t, which is 32 bit
unsigned int on both i386 and x86_64.

I'm trying to fix the data alignment errors introduced by
the tester but it's going to take a while.
