I don't know how to bring up that window, but now I had a spontaneous
disconnect from jackd, and after restarting jackd and reconnecting
ardour, I see

[ERROR]: could not reconnect system:capture_1 and ardour:Audio 3/in 1 (err = -1)
[ERROR]: could not reconnect system:capture_2 and ardour:Audio 3/in 2 (err = -1)
[ERROR]: could not reconnect ardour:Audio 3/out 1 and ardour:master/in
1 (err = -1)
[ERROR]: could not reconnect ardour:Audio 3/out 2 and ardour:master/in
2 (err = -1)

And ardour is muted again...

I'm definitely interested. Time for a friendly session with google :-)
