I had the occasion to try Zynaddsubfx on my musicbox computer. This time 
I booted a new Knoppix 6.2 DVD, which includes JACK 0.116.2 configured 
for RT on a non-RT kernel. (and the usual QJackCtl couldn't start JACK 
server error.) After some command line twiddling, I got JACK running at 
64msec latency, added Zyn to the mix, played 8 notes, then got dead 
silence as Zyn simply stopped making sound. Clicked the Panic button and 
got to play another 10-12 notes before Zyn stopped again.

Made me miss yoshimi (installed on my other laptop) quite a bit!

So also thanks for yoshimi and all the patient help with getting it working.
