I've never heard of such a problem. What kind of bus are you adding? How
many channels? What version of ardour, what version of jack?

Also: can you get us a backtrace? Compile ardour with "scons DEBUG=1"
and run ardour in gdb (via the ardbg script in gtk_ardour/)

Are you adding the bus while the transport is playing, or stopped? Does
it make a difference?

It's possible that you're the only one who has had this issue. I've been
mixing with buses as long as I've used ardour. Never had any issues like
