Gnome3 appears to be a major resource hog. I've been told that Gnome3
desktop uses 1GB RAM without running anything else. For comparison, XFCE
uses less than 256MB.

My desktop machine has quad-core AMD Phenom II processor, 12GB RAM and
some NVidia card that isn't supported by Nouveau. It works very well
with RG and other audio and graphics stuff I do with it. It's running
the XFCE environment. Some audio distros I know of use XFCE or LXDE
because both KDE4 and Gnome3 have gotten too big. KDE in particular
fires up a whole bunch of KDE system daemons that suck up processor
cycles, check hardware status (a good way to trigger extraneous
interrupts), index the files in your home folder, etc. Lots of
functionality that you might not want to have interfering with audio work.

Hmmmm. What version of Rosegarden? Do you have RG start JACK, or do you
start JACK first, then RG? And do you have the problem if you don't use
