Does it matter whether the BCF2000 or ardour are on the input
side or output side of the patch bay?

Nope.  It came with Mandriva 2007.0, specificly

I used ldd on qjackctl, which showed that libasound is indeed
missing. libasound is in the libalsa2-devel package on Mandriva
2007.0, and it's installed on my system.  I rebuilt qjackctl
from the Mandriva source RPM. ldd on the new qjackctl shows that
libasound is linked in.  I installed this freshly home-built
qjackctl.  Now my MIDI tab works.

A very good guess it was.

Not anymore.  Thank you, thank you!  I'm not physically near the
BCF2000, so tonight I'll see if it actually communicates with
ardour2 for me.

I submitted this issue as a bug to Mandriva.  The link to the bug
is here: http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=30881

Thanks again....
