However, I have the habit of checking pointer validity before passing it to a 3rd party function. You never know, when the 3rd party lib is closed-source and its API badly documented,  you may get crashes. It's not the case here so you can keep it like that.

Hello James

It have change again,the whole porthandling was a "dirty workaround" for
a proplem depper in the source. Fons give me some usefull hints to open
my mind and I be able to find and clear it. So the whole port
un/register stuff is gone, now guitarix only register ports when they
realy used (when jconv is run). A side effect from this, there is also
no different experience any more between jackd or jackdmp.

Okay, I will replace "merke" with "jcio" :D
