I used a mix of hydrogen and jack examples to get what I have so far.
I have had lmms running for several hours without issue (light use as I
start learning keyboard), as long as I don't use soundfont or zynaddsubfx

I decided to push it to github https://github.com/sambler/lmms
branch is jackmidi it is based off stable-0.4 with freebsd ports
patches included.

If you can find any clue as to why soundfont or zynaddsubfx fails it
would be appreciated.

I chose to try sending each byte from the buffer through ParseData the
way it would be parsed from a midi device. As that works in 80% of lmms
I'm not sure that I would need to parse the jack data separately.
