Bug Description

I am currently running precise on my Pandaboard (rev A4) and, just as is also the case under Oneiric and Linaro 12.02, I am unable to use qjackctl to start JACK because JACK says it cannot set the period size to any power of 2. My kernel is 3.2.0-1409-omap4 and this is the sort of error I get:
