No that's good, I like logical and you've got to start somewhere ruling 
things out.

As I mentioned in my original post, these are really light sessions, 16 
tracks, not all playing at once, half a dozen plugins -- I'm still at 
the writing stage, not tracking or mixing. The other one I tried was two 
tracks. I haven't dared open anything big. I had wondered about the 
number of ports, but that's set at 1024.

The only messages I get when it disconnects are:

JACK connection graph change
JACK connection change

When I try creating a track in Ardour I get an error message that it 
can't connect because it's disconnected from JACK -- it seems to be 
disconnecting after the track is created but before it can connect it 
up. As I say, it's instantaneous rather than seeming to be any sort of 
timeout thing.
