This is the workaround I've used as well, but it's a nuisance.

There was some talk a few years ago about the devs doing a 'proper'
jack implementation, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside.

B.T.W. looking around, I see a number of people are reporting the same,
or similar issues.

Up to now I've run away from using Ardour because it's severe overkill
for the audio work I do, and has a horrendously steep learning curve.
It looks like I might be forced to go that way after all :(

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
