Hey hey everyone,
for a few months now my jackd1 (0.121.3) takes on a lot of CPU, even with no 
clients connected. Admittedly my CPU is down at 800MHz, one core most of the 

Normally JACK stays below 2% though.

The kernel is:
3.9.0rc6 SMP PREEMPT (self built)

For some reason I couldn't use JACKD2 - and at the time it wasn't advised 

Any idea, why this CPU-hunger might creep up? Things to look into? I'd be very 
grateful for hints.
