Run ardbg, it's a script, read it to understand why. The same goes for 
an Ardour that's been built with "scons DEBUG=0": Run ardev in that

My explanation of the timeout was crap anyway. Longer timeout means that 
jack's "You don't respond in time. Me kill you now" happens later. So 
there would be more time to get a backtrace. Now that sounds crappy 
again, doesn't it?

Hm. Ardour's export issues have been fixed in cvs. Something else is 
going wrong with Esa's and your installation. There was a problem with 
the freewheeling mode of jack (Export uses that in order to export 
faster than realtime) and getting back realtime-capabilities after the 
export. Your description of Ardour freezing doesn't match that. Still 
I'd try the latest jack out of cvs (0.99.72) to exclude that from the 
long list of potential showstoppers.
