Chances are quite high that this is not JACK's fault. There are many things 
beside which can cause dropouts, shared interrupts for example.

That does not mean I would advertise JACK as THE perfect sound server, but IMO 
(and this is also the opinion of the majority of serious audio and music app 
developers) its yet the best^TM and the JACK developers are certainly willing 
to address existing problems.

Shutting up now.
