I put in the change you made to the bit where it sets the buffer size from
the svn code, and it's now been running for nearly 3 days solid with no
ringbuffer xruns (ices was kicked once by jack, but this was a different
error, not the 'ringbuffer full' error.) I'm feeling happier about using
the jack module for real now, so thanks for telling me about this. (the
svn code). The port auto (re)connection code I wrote seems to be working
nicely as well - when the input module restarts it connects itself back to
the same input client, so the stream doesn't go down.
