`man jackd`: In realtime mode the client timeout must be smaller than
the watchdog timeout (5000 msec). - 5s may have been re-set to default

since no one else seems to reply. This problem is not a
recent one but never bothered me in particular.
I've got a hunch that it's the ardour GUI lazily moving
the playhead.. - I can reproduce it if I do two (or more) transport
relocations. When one of them coincides with ardour adjusting the
playhead to a former relocate (ardour quickly goes to stop and the play
again) jack-transport remains stopped.
Since one can't scrub jack-transport anyway, it's probably not worth
fixing. Did you check if there's already a ticket in the bugtracker?
