Hi Ge,

My current Linux system is still Fedora 1, so I need to get that 
updated.  Once I do that, I'll look into the Jack bus error thing 
(since I wasn't having a problem like that before).  This is the first 
time I've heard about this problem ... though I admit I don't always 
have time to read the ChucK posts.
