Hi Derek,

I've been seeing lockups like what you describe. I
wondered if what I was seeing coincided with some new
settings I've configured for pci latencies-that's
another story.

I think with this type of report you should post the
messages to ardour-dev at .

Jesse Chappel does read this list but Paul doesn't.
Not sure about Taybin.
