Do you have Ardour set to autoconnect to hardware ports when creating
a new track? Try disabling this if that's the case and see if Ardour
still disconnects from JACK when the track is created.

If that's successful try and manually connect the track input or output to
hardware, and see how many hardware channels show up in the connection menu
(in Ardour's mixer window channel strip). If you don't see the full number
of channels available it's probably a system configuration problem.
