Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

I was rather hoping there might be some way of getting Jack itself to abort
under these conditions.

I do use an RT kernel on the main machines, and normal input is completely
unresponsive, so trying to get to a terminal or start another session with the
three finger salute is impossible.

I've not thought of trying to ssh from another machine - never even tried that
before for normal operations, so it could be 'interesting' :o

At the moment I'm not inclined to do too much experimenting due to only just
recovering from a recent disaster (power cut in the middle of an upgrade).

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