I've been experiencing problems as well when exporting under
UbuntuStudio 12.04 (kernel 3.2.0-23 & jack2). In my case, the export
works fine, but at the end, when ardour tells jack to return to realtime
mode, I see an error AcquireRealTimeError, and then Ardour freezes up, and
will not play. Qjackctl still indicates that jackd is running, but `ps
aux | grep jack` shows jackdbus, but no jackd. I have to force-kill
jackdbus, qjackctl, and ardour and then start over.
I wonder if it's related to pulseaudio (our recent favorite
whipping-boy). UbuntuStudio 12.04's implementation of qjackctl
automagically makes connections to clients called 'pulseaudio jack source'
and 'pulseaudio jack sink' whenever you use it to start jackd. Then when
you go to stop jack, it throws up a warning about clients still connected.
I have to go to the 'connections' window, and do a 'disconnect all' before
stopping jack. If I simply do a 'stop anyway' in the warning window, I'm
left in a state where jack won't start again until after a reboot.
