I'm using 2.6.4 and it works fine...still not near the latency I would
like w/o xruns (i have to do -n 3 -p 512, can only get away with 256

on an unrelated note, does anyone know if there are any adverse
effects of having "subgraph timed out" messages when i load a session
due to the I/O to get it open?  older versions seemed to cause
crackling after any timeout message, but the beta11.2 i've got now
doesn't show any audible problems...should i be scared?
