That's what happened. Of course this is no scientific examination.

on a notebook computer with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700T CPU @ 2.90GHz

and a MOTU Ultralite AVB interface. Since it's class compliant there
shouldn't be any difference to other class compliant interfaces. I
bought the Ultralite AVB because it has enough outputs for several
different mixes and a mixer with equalizer that can be controlled with a
web browser interactively or with curl and a JSON api.

The latest 333 firmwares are buggy and cause a channel hop. I made a bug
report and the issue was known. I hope it will be fixed in the next
firmware revision.

At the moment firmware 1.3.2+520 ist the way to go for Linuxers.
