I believe I finally found the cause for this. A timeout calculation, used
in the engine command-queue implementation, had bugs and this caused
arbitrary delays to engine communication. This is now fixed in git and the
snapshot tarball I just sent a mail about.

I've also been stresstesting the snapshot build on my machines (with
JACK and rt-scheduling) and no problems encountered so far. So seems good.

Feedback is welcome!
