Jackd Problems -- alsa_pcm: xrun of at least 1227061150613.504 msecs



In the past I've never had any problems running jackd.  Now I'm getting
a very large number of messages reading:
        **** alsa_pcm: xrun of at least 1227061150613.504 msecs
I'm running F9 on an x86_64 system with all updates installed.
Pulseaudio is not running.  Jackd is started via qjackctl.  No past
problems with audio beyond the usual conflicts between pulseaudio and
firefox.

Questions:
(1) What exactly does this message mean?  An "xrun" is a buffer under-
or over-run -- but what does the time interval represent?

(2) Whatever the time interval means, it looks rather large.
1227061150613.504 msec is many days (or maybe years if msec means
millisec and not microsec)  This looks like a misconfiguration of some
kind or a missing component.  Any idea what it might be?

Here is the start of the qjackctl log of the session.
