I spoke too soon. I got another error during my third playback since
changing jackd parameters, and after
adding the gverb plugin to four of the vocal tracks.  This one
reads "The disk system on your computer was not able to keep up with 
Ardour.  Specifically, it failed to read data from disk quickly enough
to keep up with playback."  I've been alternating between this error
and "Jack has ... shutdown ... because Ardour was not fast enough."

Seems reasonable enough, except that for the first few days of working 
with this session, I didn't encounter it.
