as it turns out, theres a divide-by-zero on alsahandle->num_channels or similar. ive noticed other ALSA apps will also fail with plug:jack (notably Twinkle) with an error very similar (eg, no available channels for opening), while others such as Ekiga or those using GStreamer, have no problems with plug:jack.

are these apps working around it by trying to open channels even if the number available is reported to be 0? maybe this is a bug in jack:plug for not making up a number like at least 2, if alsa_pcm devices exist in jack..
