When I run jack with qjackctl it coplains about ALSA/midi/patchbay.  I
went on IRC and as a result tried to start jack anyway.   It then
consumed 100% cpu.  I couldent run top or ps!  In fact I couldent even
shut down the PC properly - I had to hold my finger on the power
button for 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown.

BYW are the error messages loged to a file - I cant even copy/paste
them from the message window.
