[LAU] Problems with horgand-v1.11 (xruns)

I havn't seen Horgand before, but built it on Fedora 7, using the default Alsa
audio out. It launched with no problems, but when playing keys on my usb midi
keyboard, I was getting something that sounded like xruns. I've left it a
couple of days, and had a few updates for Fedora 7. I launched Horgand again,
still heard what appear to be xruns, and decided to change the audio output
to Jack. Bad move!!!. I can no longer launch Horgand. I tried a bunch of
stuff. A make uninstall, and removing stuff that was left behind,
(~/.horgand, and an empty directory in /usr/local/share, followed by a make
install. Still no launch of the app. next I removed the directory created
from unpacking the tarball, and recreated the directory. Then did
a ./configure, make, and make install again. Still nothing. It appears that
I've killed it by trying to get it to use Jack.
I'm not giving up, so I boot up Debian Etch on the same machine. Build Horgand
on Etch, setup the desktop launcher, and it's nice that there is an icon for
Horgand, and a nice one too. I launch it, and it opens just fine, but I'm
getting these same sort of xrun sounds when playing it. Shut it down, and
launch it from a terminal. 2 lines are printed, followed by continual lines
of xruns!, and I havn't touched a key on the keyboard, and the keyboard isn't
even connected in Qjackctl's midi connections.
I havn't tried changing the audio out to Jack, as I don't want to screw up
Horgand on Etch, as changing to Jack on Fedora 7 seems to have done. Doh!
Any suggestions to resolve the xrun problem? This seems like a nice app, and
it would be nice to get it working well.
