One test to do would be:

- make sure Rosegarden and Jack are using Jack Transport and the BPM and 
meter are the same (I think both default to 120 BPM and 4/4 so starting 
from scratch should get you going).
- In hydrogen put one note at the very beginning of the pattern (bar?)
- In Rosegarden create a 1 bar segment and select repeat (checkbox in 
the left pane)
- In Rosegarden open the matrix editor and place only one note at the 
very beginning of the bar
- Ideally the notes in Hydrogen and in RG would have different timbre
- hit Play in Rosegarden.

The two notes should be perfectly synchronised. :-)

If this works then the timing discrepancy depends on the actual 
notes/rhythms you are entering. If it doesn't it would indeed show some 
sort of synchronisation problem.

As a side note on Jack Transport:
One thing I have noticed with Rosegarden and Jack Transport (but with 
Ardour) is that to play well Ardour must be set to 'jack slave' (i.e. in 
Ardour deselect "JACK Time Master") *and* transport operations (play, 
stop, etc.) *must* always be done in Rosegarden. I'm not sure though 
that this is really relevant to Rosegaden <-> Hydrogen interaction.
