[pulseaudio-discuss] Pulseaudio and Jack: getting timeouts

I'm running pulseaudio, jack 3.1.1 and
jack-audio-connection-kit 0.109.2-r1, on a gentoo system:
2.6.31-gentoo-r10 #2 SMP PREEMPT Sun Apr 11 21:15:42 MDT 2010 x86_64
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9300 @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
8 gigs of ddr3 ram

I can get pulseaudio feeding into jack with success. In gnome my
pulseaudio volume control displays "Jack Sink (PulseAudio JACK Sink)"
and i can route sound into ardour, so i know they are both working.

However, it's not working as well as i would like. I much prefer the
sound of the "resample-method= src-sinc-best-quality" setting over the
default.  However, when i select the src-sinc-best-quality method
in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf jack times out (the output is below).

I would like to have jack and pulse audio working with the best sync
method.  Anyone know where to start?

Thanks for the help folks,
