You get a lot of xruns, then jackd says no and crashes. If it is
possible to power off/on your FireWire card then try that. Another
option might be to unload and reload the FireWire kernel module. But
first of all you need to get rid of those xruns. Try raising jackd's
prio, it's now running with prio 10 while the default is 50. Did you
lower it yourself? And I don't know what other tweaks you did. As the
co-author of the LinuxMusicians System Configuration wiki I assume you
probably tweaked your system to the max already ;)
