Hi folks!
  OK beat me round the head with a rubber-bat. I gave /dev/shm as jack's 
tmpdir. Not good. Now LS runs fine. BUT!!!
  But still when I do the following - and this is repeatable:
start fluidsynth like this:
fluidsynth -a jack -j -r 48000 nd_bass_guitar.sf2
  Start ecasound and use it:
ecasound -B:rtlowlatency -b:64 -r 30 -c -a:1 -i jack_auto,fluidsynth \
  -o test.wav -a:2 -i null -pn:met,120 -a:3 -i monitor.wav -a:2,3 -o jack_alsa

  And then after working finish ecasound. Fluidsynth looses its connection 
because JACK simply dies, saying:
jackd watchdog: timeout - killing jackd
  This is not nice, though sufferable. But as sufferable still contains "to 
suffer", it would be nice to abolish it.
  Can anyone help here?
  Kindest regards
