The main issue was that the playback cursor acted flakily when I set
Ardour as the time master, very similarly to how you described it --
it wouldn't make the other synched Jack apps (Rosegarden & Hydrogen)
playback correctly or the playback cursor wouldn't go to the home
position when I pressed the Home key or even dragged it, it would stay
"stuck" in the last place I stopped playback. This was only with the
Ubuntu packaged Ardour (version 2.8.6), I didn't have the problem when
I compiled 2.8.11 from source. I don't remember (and I am not at my
studio machine right now), but I think I ended up rebuilding Jack &
QJackCtl from source as well, to eliminate potential issues between
Jack 7 Ardour.
