This really shouldn't be causing a problem.  Others have successfully
started it when it sits in a subfolder, *but* if there are any spaces
in a folder name in the path it won't work properly (that is a bug to
be fixed).  I will check it out soon.

Yes, the current version of jack can interrupt the audio stream when
patching connections together.  A future version is being tested that
solves that problem.   Currently, for flexibility each loop gets its
own ports, so you could route completely different sources/dests
independently for each loop.  Sometimes, that much flexibility is too
much, as you've discovered.  Would you like to see an option in SL to
always use the same input and output ports for every loop?

The AU plugin version would not use JACK, it would be just like any
other plugin.  However, some of the features of the standalone app
will be lost, and it will likely just support a single loop per plugin

Thanks for the feedback!
