okay, updated jack. then started jackd as root to run with realtime scheduling.
#jackd -d hammerfall -r 44100 --realtime --verbose
but then alsaplayer wouldn't connect to jack as a normal user. i got this.
$ alsaplayer -o jack

cannot connect to jack server
cannot connect to default JACK server
jack server not running?
failed to load output add-on. Exiting...
so i started alsaplayer as root too.
#alsaplayer -o jack
it sounds perfect!! speed is just right and i can't cause a dropout or pop even
with lots of other activity.
BTW, without the -r 44100 option to jackd, the PCM device defaulted (i guess
that's what happened) to 48000 KHz which alsaplayer reported when it started
up. that must be why the WAV's i tested (all recorded at 44100) seemed about
10% too slow.
i also tried (again running jackd without the option -r 44100) passing
alsaplayer the option "--frequency 44100" but it made no difference and the
WAV's still ran slow.
