1) Hang:
Don't compile the kernel with realtime preemption but with desktop 
preemption and the hang will go away. It's a bug in the RT patch.

2) QJackCtl:
start qjackctl after starting jackd with the freebob backend on the 
command line
use qjackctl from it's cvs as it has support for freebob built in.
