When using JACK, the message
"JACK tmpdir identified as [/dev/shm]"
is sent to stderr whenever a program attempts JACK detection
and JACKD is not running.
It seems to me that this behaviour is undesireable for the following
- It is ill behaviour for a library to write messages to the console;
- It seems to be a message of informative nature, rather than an
- Even as a JACK application programmer, it doesn't provide me
with any useful information;
- A program might check if JACK is running many, many times
(every time a 'play' button is clicked, a seek slider is moved,
etc), so that it can start using JACK whenever it becomes
available; but this floods the console/stderr with useless
- Even sending this message to the log would flood the log with
hundreds of identical messages.
- I can't turn it off!
I'd be very happy if this message could be suppresed by default.
