I have been experiencing exactly the same problem (it doesn't happen all that 
frequently though, perhaps 2 or 3 times during an entire day of recording). 

Dual P4 Xeon 2.8 Ghz
5x 10K RPM SCSI disks in RAID5 configuration
2x RME Multifaces, clock synched (I actually only connect 1 interface to jack 
and wire the analogue ins to the ADAT outs using the other's mixer).

Kernel: gentoo-2.6.15-r1 (rest of gentoo system compiled -march pentium4 -O2)
Jack: -R -p2048 -r48000 (amongst the other usual stuff)

I would actually like to get the jack period down a bit and the rate up to 96K 
too, but the above is all that I've been able to get running stable so far.
