JFTR: In the past, audacity wasn't exactly the most reliable piece of
audio software available. It was actually known to be broken in
different ways every time a new version was available.
I've seen so many bug reports against audacity (as a member of the
Debian Multimedia Package Maintainers) and spent some hours hacking
patches that I arrived at the conclusion that audacity is best for
visualizing waveforms. I guess it was never intended to actually output
Long story short: just because audacity behaves abnormally doesn't mean
the card itself is broken.
Or more frankly: audacity isn't reliable enough to be used as a test
tool. Use plain jackd and maybe ardour to record a track via digital
loopback. Maybe even remove jackd from the test setup.
I wonder if you're just seeing ordinary xruns caused by wrong jackd
